Now every developer is also a tester!

Join us for a hands-on guide for developers to test their work for continuous quality throughout the Software Development Life Cycle (SDLC).

Shift Left and Continuous Integration and Continuous Delivery (CI/CD) have put developers under pressure to produce code quickly, but it also needs to be error free.

We’ll walk through how to set up a process to test your code as you work, and integrate performance testing into your CI/CD pipeline.

We’ll also show you how to scale your tests, reduce bottlenecks with mock services, and monitor your work post-production.
