About:

This is an exploration of DevOps and adjacent domains from a quality perspective.

The workshop starts with a grounding in foundational elements such as complexity, service, value and ethics.

Then it dives into DevOps, looking at the dominant concepts and characteristics, the fuzzy scope of DevOps, and guiding principles and cultural norms. During this section we will be looking at how QA and testing are embedded in regular DevOps roles, rather than separate specialized quality roles. The traditional QA and testing role seems to be shifting from doing to facilitating.

At the end of the workshop, you will reflect on which perspectives you will be considering and which actions will you be taking when you get back to work.

Note: the workshop is more about QA than testing and emphasizes first principles rather than specific techniques. It does not discuss testing technology.
