Agile Development and Continuous Testing

Ever since the first software was conceived, there was an immediate need for certain methodologies to follow to create further software. Calling the process of creating and maintaining software “Software Development” was not enough, as there were a lot to process and familiarize with. Software Development includes all the different processes that are involved from conception of the desired software to the final product. The main processes are: thought process, research, design, programming, documenting, testing and bug fixing. Some of these processes may be repeated to maintain the software. Over the years, there have been an abundance of approaches to [...]

Shift-Left Testing and Continuous Testing

It’s all about the basic test principle; testing early. I can easily mention that implementing agile practices without the shift left approach may lead your software to lack quality or have a delay in its delivery. The shift-left testing emphasizes the “ Testing Early” principle of testing. People who are familiar with software testing principles should be well aware of the seven testing principles. However, Continuous Testing is the process of executing tests as a part of the delivery (DevOps) pipeline in order to get faster feedback on the potential software bugs related to a release as soon as possible.
