Letter From The Editor

By Michael Hackett, LogiGear Corporation

DevOps can be a big scary thing. Culture change, constant collaboration— whatever that means— a big new set of tools… it’s a lot. What most teams want is to have a smooth running software development pipeline. I have stopped using the phrase “DevOps,” and now I say “Continuous Delivery.” There are many reasons for this.

Mega Trends in Testing: Continuous Delivery, Production Line and the Deployment Pipeline

DevOps may be the next big buzzword, but Test teams really need to focus on its little sister, Continuous Delivery

By Michael Hackett, LogiGear Corporation

If you pay attention to trends in software development—from the perspective of what some sophisticated teams are doing, what articles and books are being written, to conference topics, you may have noticed the tools being developed— there have been transformations in the past decade:

Free Delivery: 5 Things Amazon Prime Taught Me About Deployment Automation

Eric Minick brilliantly demonstrates how automation works in Continuous Delivery using this real-world “case study”.

By Eric Minick, IBM

As a product manager at IBM working on our UrbanCode products, I think a lot about Continuous Delivery, how to do it and what it does for teams. Continuous Delivery techniques enable teams to deliver software faster and with less risk. The ideal in continuous delivery is for a developer to push a code change, and have that change rapidly built and tested. Minutes later, the code should either be rejected as having a rejection, or be available to be released into production. Needless to say, most teams are still working towards that ideal.

LEADER’S PULSE: THE CHANGING DYNAMIC OF MEASUREMENT AND ITS COMPETING FORCES

Above angle of mature business partners hands during analysis of marketingBy Michael Hackett

I have been leading and managing software projects for a long time. Measuring the product and process has always caused great consternation. At its worst we measured everything that we could possibly measure.  We measured so many things that, in the end, I always doubted whether it led to higher quality software, or process improvement, when in actuality it  was to make managers feel “safer”.  Of course someone always had to keep track that the bugs got closed and the priority of deferred bugs, but in most cases the extent to which companies tracked and made reports on those bugs was far greater cost in time than the benefit we got from them.  I remember the days when Friday afternoon was compiling all kinds of numbers and measurements and metrics. All the test case and bug measures. Test cases executed, tests yet to execute. Automation runs. Passes and fails. New bugs open, bugs close rates. Find fix rates. Metrics reports turned into dashboards distributed to the team- ignored by most. Few metrics on the dashboard were even discussed. Did it really lead to higher quality?
