Best Practices for Shift-Left Testing and Monitoring to Accelerate Software Delivery
Date & Location
August 02 | 2:30 pm PDT | Observability Theater
With more organizations embracing CI/CD and DevOps practices at every stage of the SDLC, development and release cycles are becoming faster than ever. This rapid pace of innovation makes it even more important to ensure high-quality tests are being run earlier, more frequently, and more reliably. However, the sheer number of CI jobs across pipelines, along with the challenges of creating and running tests in pre-production, make these practices incredibly difficult to implement. In this theater session, we’ll explore the emerging best practices for shifting testing left, including how to write, run, and monitor high-quality end-to-end tests. We’ll also see how you can leverage Datadog CI Visibility and Continuous Testing to implement and evangelize these practices throughout your organization. We’ll walk through how you can aggregate pipeline and test data across your entire CI ecosystem to identify and fix slowdowns or failures, and see how you can adopt fast, codeless, and reliable end-to-end testing to continuously measure the health and performance of your applications in pre-production.
