Building on his talk at the Government Test Professionals Forum, Nigel will present on 'Continuous Validation – Faster, better software delivery' at the two-day conference for software quality and testing. Over 200 software testing professionals and vendors are expected to attend.
Nigel’s presentation is aimed at anyone involved in software delivery. He looks at it through a tester’s eyes, based on our experiences of helping clients implement the approach.
As a precursor to Continuous Delivery, creating a Continuous Validation pipeline through to the test environments provides a strong foundation for building quality into the software development process.
Nigel will discuss how Continuous Validation changes the role of a tester, the prerequisites for implementing the practices and the benefits and challenges of this approach. The presentation will include a demonstration of a simple validation pipeline using open-source tools.
