Posted by Chris Tozzi in Continuous DeliveryContinuous Integration

If you ask most DevOps experts what goes into a Continuous Integration or Continuous Delivery chain, they’ll mention components like CI servers and code repositories. They’re less likely to discuss automated testing tools, despite the fact that automated testing is just as crucial in order to achieve complete CI/CD.

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 [...]
