Integrating Testers into DevOps
Testing is a crucial part of DevOps. When moving to continuous delivery, you don't want to optimize your process to ship bugs faster. You want to ship quality features as fast as possible. This means that in a DevOps process, there is no place for long stabilization phases where all development is halted. Instead testers work together with developers. This chapter details how testers can be the most effective by using the specific testing features of Visual Studio Team Services. You'll first look into manual testing and then explore the topic of automated tests.
