Excuse-Free Testing: An Open Source Tool for Simpler CI Integration

Add to calendar

The goal of continuous testing is to find defects earlier in the development lifecycle and release software faster to the market. This can be achieved by integrating open source functional and performance testing tools in the early stages of your software delivery lifecycle. Klaus Neuhold will explain how to integrate the open source test automation framework Taurus, and other tools such as JMeter and Selenium, as a CI step in Jenkins pipelines, so that these tools can be triggered as part of everyday code commits or builds. Taurus can run a large variety of tests and has reporting features that ensure agile teams dodge defects and nasty surprises before the software is released. It's a sophisticated yet easy-to-use framework that requires no programming skills, and test scenarios can be described in a natural-language DSL and triggered from any command-line enabled tools. Join Klaus in the exciting journey of excuse-free testing!
