Building Automation at Scale using TestOps
Most of the organizations started following the best practices of microservices way of development and moving towards cloud infrastructure in a secure way. The same applies to Test automation frameworks and tools – moving towards a single unified tool approach of supporting all testing methods (Unit/API/UI/Performance) in a single tool and writing UI acceptance/regression tests using the same high level Gherin language in a behaviour driven way. So the need for Test resources will shift from the exact tools skillset to the domain knowledge of Test Operations in this hybrid work culture. In every organization, it is mandatory to understand TestOps to build automation at scale and deliver high quality products at speed.
