Unless you’ve been hibernating for the past decade or two, I’m sure you have already become well aware of the benefits of continuous testing: reduced cost of development, less waste, improved system reliability, reduced risk upon release, and so on. Of course, you believe putting it into practice in the real world is not as simple as some vendors may have. It’s become clear that having a continuous integration tool configured will not mean that a team successfully achieves continuous testing.
Fortunately, we now have more resources than ever to overcome this organizational challenge, such as the ACT Framework. Not long ago, my team and I also released our Ultimate Guide to Continuous Testing, which is very much in line with the philosophy of the ACT framework. In this post, I will share some key considerations and tips from the guide to successfully implement continuous testing.
