How to Start with Agile Development
Posted by Ely Hechtel in AgileBest Practices

Everybody is talking about agile development but not many companies have implemented it successfully or decided to abandon the traditional software development process. Becoming agile is not something that can be achieved overnight. There are two key elements to become agile: to be organised and to act continuously. But how can you combine those things and fit them into your development cycle to [...]

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

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 [...]

Security and Testing

Is your test environment secure? Do you know who has access to your test data, your source code, your design specifications? There was a time, back in the days of stand-alone test systems and networks that were strictly local-area, when those questions would have been easy to answer. A co-worker or two might have been looking over your shoulder, but that would have been about it. These days, [...]

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 [...]
