Shift Left Testing and Continuous Collaboration

At this year’s BADCamp I did a session with Thom Toogood, a Lead Drupal Developer at Deloitte Digital Australia, on Shift Left Testing and Continuous Collaboration.

Thom Toogood and Jody Hamilton

Shift left testing is the process of moving the testing phase left of its usual position in the delivery pipeline so that it occurs as close as possible to the build process rather than toward the end of the project. By proactively testing integrations early and often, you can isolate most defects sooner for faster remediation, resulting in more efficient projects that are higher quality.

Continuous Collaboration is a software delivery approach in which organizations work seamlessly together across technical and non-technical departments. The approach aims to reduce the friction inherent in software development projects. It aligns an organization’s decision making processes by allowing non-technical stakeholders and team members to contribute and give meaningful feedback on a day-to-day basis.

As with CI and CD, CC also ensures that any changes or features that have reached the end of the process can be deployed.

Our session covers these topics and the ways in which Probo supports this type of workflow.
