    by Colin Deady, Capita IT Professional Services

    Behaviour Driven Development has enjoyed great success in recent years.

  • Without Testing there is no Continuous Delivery

    by Rob Vanstone, Technical Consultant, XebiaLabs Ltd.

    It’s all very well churning out our new agile features with the intention of getting them to our paying customers faster and with less effort but if we’re not testing in an automated fashion then we’re not “doing Continuous Delivery”. Worse still, if we’re not even testing but still claiming we are doing continuous delivery then we’ve just hired our customers as testers, and they can be very expensive. In this session we will cover some background as to why early testing is important to Continuous Delivery and show you our experiences in this area with a real customer story of the challenges faced and how they were overcome.
