I want to take a look at one of the most important (if not the most important) aspects of the software delivery process: testing! As software teams become more mature in their implementation of DevOps and continuous delivery to streamline their software delivery, testing takes a central role as a prerequisite to these practices.

Avoiding the ‘Sorcerer’s Apprentice’ Problem of Software Releases | @DevOpsSummit #DevOps

One of my favorite scenes from Disney's film Fantasia is that of the "Sorcerer's Apprentice" (originally, a poem by Goethe). Mickey Mouse, as the apprentice, is being trampled by an army of enchanted, cloned brooms. The brooms multiply automatically - in an endless march to "get the job done": fetching water in buckets to fill up the room - threatening to drown Mickey. For Release Managers responsible for software delivery in large organizations - managing the multitude of software releases the enterprise needs to support can feel a lot like drowning/being trampled by an army of b...
