The Sauce Journey - Shu Ha Ri
Posted by Joe Alfaro in AgileBest PracticesDevOpsScrumThe Story of Sauce

If you're attempting to implement an Agile/Scrum development process where none has existed before, you will surely an encounter a moment of frustration on the part of your developers. "Why do we have to do these standups?" "I don't understand why we need to assign story points, can't we just get to the projects?" "Where is my technical specification?" Like Ralph Macchio in The Karate Kid, your [...]

Sauce Updates OnDemand Plugin for Jenkins Pipeline

We have updated our OnDemand plugin for Jenkins with explicit support for Jenkins Pipeline. This update enables development and testing teams to easily create, manage, and run automated tests using scripts on Jenkins, resulting in faster testing.

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.

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 [...]

Accessibility (AX) Testing in the DevOps Chain

Image Source: http://simplyaccessible.com/accessibility/ We often hear how important accessibility (AX) is for delivery, but we consistently see that it’s one of the first things cut as we get closer and closer to release (and we hope we’ll have the chance to properly address it later).
