Shane Keville, Cisco Systems, Galway
Continuous integration as a development practise is often considered to be a silver bullet in the agile development world. Whilst this may well be true, it can be expensive to setup, costly to maintain and slow to implement. But what about continuous testing? This talk will deal with some of the difficulties faced with taking a continuous build system and adding continuous testing to the process. I will discuss some of the problems we faced around test reliability, test usefulness and test coverage. I’ll touch on some of the tools we used to help us with this and some common sense approaches to adding tests into the build process.
