In this session, Varuna will share a specific case study of how an effective test strategy can get away from Push and Pray deployment to Continuous and Confident deployment to production.
This is a case study of the product, where the very first thing I observed was unclear roles and responsibilities within the QA of an organization. There was a low test coverage as there was no clear testing strategy to follow. Getting deployed to production was Push and Pray method which led to high risk for production. It was also causing inefficient use of QA timing. There was the pain felt throughout the organization in a smaller group and folks kind of accepted this pain. We started by noting down the pain points of producer and consumer teams within organizations and even a third-party team to come up with an effective test strategy for the product.
Participate in this talk to learn:
- How do we form a core team to define the external and internal strategy?
- How did we apply recursive feedback and updated the strategy when and required after a production release?
- Internal Test Strategy: A strategy within a Team of the same vertical as checkout API and UI
- External Test Strategy: An end-to-end test strategy for a product
- How did it help in getting away from Push and Pray deployment to Continuous and Confident deployment to production?
We got the motivated QAs across the organizations and better quality products with a Test Strategy across organizations. It had also helped in mapping a QA learning curve with a test strategy within an organization
