Enhancing DevOps Efficiency: The Crucial Role of Automated Testing in CI/CD

In the rapidly evolving landscape of software development, the adoption of DevOps practices has become paramount for organizations striving to deliver high-quality software at an accelerated pace. Continuous Integration and Continuous Delivery (CI/CD) are integral components of the DevOps pipeline, ensuring rapid and reliable software delivery. In this era of DevOps, automated testing plays a pivotal role in enhancing the efficiency, reliability, and overall success of the CI/CD process. DevOps Understanding DevOps, CI/CD, and Automated Testing DevOps: A Cultural Shift DevOps is a cultural and organizational shift that seeks to break down silos between development and operations teams. It emphasizes collaboration, communication, and automation to deliver high-quality software more efficiently. CI/CD, on the other hand, is a set of best practices that automate the process of integrating code changes and deploying them to production. Continuous Integration involves regularly merging code

QA in Production

For a while, I have been thinking about the responsibilities of QA Engineers by broadening them to the production environment. In this post, I want to write the reasoning behind the needs of QA Engineers in production. Integration Testing: Tools and Technology Every day we are facing new integration points with third-party tools or technologies for a win-win strategy. Most of the time these technologies are in the term of the trial period or just a cheap alternative to the present one. These technologies or tools simply don't have adequate documentation so it makes the development and testing of integration riskier. This means that the development, test, uat or preprod test environment is not enough for catching all possible bugs, as a result, the production environment is the final destination for checking logs and monitoring the integration results. Validation of Non-Functional Requirements There are also unclear points behind the non-functional requirements like performance a
