The Sauce Journey – Emergent Leaders
Posted by Joe Alfaro in AgileBest PracticesDevOpsScrumThe Story of Sauce

In my last blog post I wrote about the way in which moving to SCRUM teams fosters communication, transparency, and trust, both internally among team members, and externally with customers. Achieving open communication like this is one of the main goals of Agile, but just as important is the development of leadership within the SCRUM teams. Ideally, every SCRUM team is self-managing in regards to [...]

The Sauce Journey - Courage, Transparency, Trust

In my last blog post, I described the first step on our journey from Engineering to DevOps, which was the formation of project-focused SCRUM teams. SCRUM brings many opportunities for improving the development process, but it's wise to keep in mind the old saying "SCRUM doesn't fix problems, it points them out." This means that the very first thing to emerge from SCRUM is transparency, because it [...]

Two Approaches to Test Automation Architectures

I’ve yet to see two development environments that are alike. But even if there is no cookie cutter approach to software delivery, there are standard approaches, and methodologies that are consistent throughout modern software development and that frame nearly all environments. Because there is a big move in software testing to go from purely manual testing (a non-technical process) to a [...]

Testing and Continuous Integration: Making Everything Work Together

Continuous integration (CI) has emerged as one of the most efficient ways to develop code. But testing has not always been a major part of the CI conversation. In some respects, that's not surprising. Traditionally, CI has been all about speeding up the coding, building, and release process. Instead of having each programmer write code separately, integrate it manually, and then wait until the [...]

Help Wanted - The Pivotal Role QA Can Play in Leading the DevOps Charge
Posted by Chris Riley in AgileAutomationBest PracticesDevOpsGuest Blog Posts

Faster, more frequent releases at a higher quality. That is all DevOps is. That’s not hard to understand. What is hard to accept, however, is how much organizations are neglecting the latter part of this equation. Not only does a lack of focus on quality slow down releases in the long term, it does not fit with the overall goal of DevOps. DevOps for existing development organizations is [...]

Agile Development to Thrive with Mobile Test Automation
Posted by Ely Hechtel in AgileBest PracticesMobile Development & Testing

We’ve been talking to mobile test automation for a while now on our blog, but how does test automation fit into the development process and how can it help with mobile app testing? Let’s take a quick look at why companies are adopting agile development, what challenges have to be faced when testing mobile apps and how automation can help to achieve a continuous delivery method. We [...]

The Sauce Journey - From Star to Scrum
Posted by Joe Alfaro in AgileBest PracticesThe Story of Sauce

When I first started at Sauce, one group within the Engineering organization was called *Dev, referred to in conversation as "StarDev." *Dev was so named because they were the wildcard development group - some of their work touched on this part of the infrastructure, or this part of the product, or this part of the Web interface, and so on. As a result of this interdisciplinary approach, much of [...]
