Title: Continuous Testing with Azure DevOps


The software development cycle today has shrunk from months to a few weeks and even days. Business priorities, customer expectations, and the technology stack keep changing rapidly; hence assuring the best product requires introducing quality gateways at every stage of the SDLC, aligning with the speed of delivery into production. The traditional testing practices are not equipped to deliver this quality with speed. Hence, the advent of Continuous Testing (CT).

In this Experience Lab Session, we will have hands-on session to setup the different quality gates in software Development Life Cycle using Azure Native Services & Opensource Testing Tools. Workshop will have focus on

1. Continuous Testing

2. Azure DevOps Services can be leveraged for Continuous Testing.

Following are synopsis on Experience Lab – Continuous Testing with Azure:

1. Continuous testing is the process of executing automated tests as part of the software delivery pipeline to obtain immediate feedback on the business risks associated with a software release. Continuous Testing is a DevOps-aligned practice that enables testing early, testing faster and testing often with higher automation levels.

2. Microsoft Azure DevOps is Software as a Service (SaaS) based solutions offered by Microsoft that provides end-to-end solutions for businesses to integrate DevOps procedures during their software cycle. Azure DevOps offer a highly scalable environment for developing and deploying simple to sophisticated software on any language, cloud, or platform. Thus, making it ideal for businesses to leverage any single Azure DevOps Services or to match with high-scale project management and task management requirements.

Following Azure DevOps native services are offered which makes easier for customer to adapt Continuous Testing in Azure:
