Exciting things are happening here at Perfecto! Today we announced the upcoming release of our second book, Continuous Testing for DevOps Professionals.
Debuting next week at Jenkins World | DevOps World, and spearheaded by Perfecto’s own Eran Kinsbruner, we collaborated with the best and brightest in the industry to provide in-depth guidance on implementing and sustaining continuous testing (CT) across the DevOps pipeline, how to address testing challenges, and offered insight into preparing for the future of testing. All profits from the sale of the book will be donated to Code.org, a nonprofit dedicated to expanding access to computer science in schools and increasing participation by women and underrepresented minorities.
As noted in our recent blog, “5 Tips to Jumpstart Your Continuous Testing Efforts,” the majority of organizations are struggling with their continuous testing strategies and implementations. As leaders in the continuous testing community, we took the lead and joined forces with industry experts to help educate and support teams as they move to CT.
We’ve compiled insights from Cloudbees, Tricentis, Testim.io, test.ai, Joe Colantonio, Jonathan Lipps and several other industry thought leaders and packaged them into this definitive guide. Here’s just some of what you get in Continuous Testing for DevOps Professionals:
- Joe Colantonio, founder of TestTalks, offers a great guide that DevOps teams can use to build the right CT plan for their specific needs in his chapter titled, “Build The Right Plan for Your Continuous Testing.”
- Wolfgang Platz, Founder and Chief Strategy Officer at Tricentis, offers outstanding insights around how DevOps teams can successfully develop the most effective path to an optimized CT process in his chapter titled “Continuous Testing: Charting Your Path and Tracking You Progress.”
- Brad Johnson, Vice President of Product Marketing at CloudBees, explores the topic of test orchestration in his chapter titled “Orchestrating Quality Across DevOps Pipelines.”
To make the content actionable for teams across the entire software development lifecycle (SDLC), including those focused specifically on web and mobile, we’ve broken the book into four sections. Each section dives deep into its focus area, offering testers and DevOps teams best practices to eliminate bottlenecks and drive mature DevOps activities. The book offers innovative perspectives on:
- Fundamentals of Continuous Testing – The first section of the book features the definition of CT and best practices for planning, analyzing, measuring and the orchestration of quality activities throughout the DevOps pipeline.
- Continuous Testing for Web Apps – This section is fully dedicated to CT for web applications, including responsive web design (RWD), progressive web apps (PWAs), leveraging headless browsers for testing web apps, accessibility testing 101, introduction to an innovative BDD framework (Gauge) for web testing, and more.
- Continuous Testing for Mobile Apps – This section is focused on advanced mobile native apps techniques that cover the leading frameworks like Appium, Espresso and XCUITest. In addition, it provides a practical guide to testing complex React Native apps using Appium.
- The Future of Continuous Testing – The final section of the book is all about the future of continuous testing with a focus on machine learning and artificial intelligence and their roles in enhancing traditional testing practices. This section also addresses testing for IoT and OTT devices, and leveraging mock test data for CT.
If you are attending Jenkins World | DevOps World, be sure to stop by our booth, #124, where we will be providing demos of our CT platform and opportunities to win free copies of Continuous Testing for DevOps Professionals. We are also hosting a book signing event at the show on Monday, September 17 at 6:00 p.m. in the DevOps Theater. Copies of the book will also be available for purchase at the conference book store.
