Adopting Observability in Development and Testing

Adopting Observability in Development and Testing

Observability has typically been associated with site reliability engineering (SRE) to help IT maintain reliability and uptime and to more quickly get to the root cause of IT issues and prevent outages. But observability also has a role to play in software development and in testing.

In this episode of DevOps Unbound, we’ll explore the growing trend of developers and test engineers integrating observability tools into the software development life cycle (SDLC). Adopting observability, typically considered the purview of operations and security, helps developers design more operable software and testers enhance efficiency and accuracy. We’ll delve into practical strategies and examples demonstrating how observability tools can identify issues and streamline bug diagnosis, leading to more robust, operable and reliable software solutions.

In this episode of DevOps Unbound, you learn from our panel of observability experts about:

  • The significant benefits observability brings to developers and testers.
  • Observability-driven design
  • Observability as a development tool
  • Observability’s impact on problem and bug investigation
  • How observability can benefit software operability

Responsible AI and DevOps - Regulators On The Horizon

Responsible AI and DevOps – Regulators On The Horizon

In the dynamic landscape of AI and DevOps, the addition of generative AI presents exciting possibilities, new safety and ethical questions and emerging efforts to impose guardrails and regulation. Responsible AI is now part of the software development lexicon, but what is responsible AI and what actions are needed by DevOps, software and AI teams? Meanwhile, government and regulatory leaders are calling for greater transparency in AI safety testing, the development of standards, tools and tests to ensure AI systems are secure, safe and trustworthy, using AI for better cybersecurity, and protections from AI’s use in fraud and deception (to name just a few class for action.)

Our panel of AI, software, and security experts will offer guidance on implementing AI responsibly and safely within DevOps and security frameworks. We will explore how to keep up with the pace of AI innovation and maintain awareness of the evolving legal and regulatory landscape surrounding AI.

The Testing Diaries: Confessions of an Application Tester

The Testing Diaries: Confessions of an Application Tester

Software testing is one of the most critical aspects of the software development life cycle, but it’s often poorly understood. Because they’re so often the bearers of bad news (highlighting bugs, glitches and areas where user experience is poor), testers are often perceived as bottlenecks, but they are just doing their job to ensure that applications are bug-free and functioning correctly. Testers may feel overwhelmed and frustrated when they are left out of early design and development conversations, have their role denigrated or have to deal with poorly written code and lack of resources. Despite all the frustrations that testers have to deal with, most are happy with their jobs and enjoy their application testing career.

Who Needs Release Management, Anyway?

Who Needs Release Management, Anyway?

Release management has changed drastically in a world where some combination of DevOps, continuous deployment, feature flags and continuous integration are practiced. Since DevOps automates and streamlines development and CI/CD on a continual basis, is there still a role for release management? Someone (or some kind of automation) needs to set clear criteria for release content, dependencies, testing and quality.

Living at the Intersection Between Testing and Observability

Living at the Intersection Between Testing and Observability

Organizations have practiced application performance management and monitoring for as long as there’s been software. Over the years it has evolved and changed to accommodate different methodologies like Agile, but traditional monitoring and testing can’t keep up with the new paradigms necessary for cloud-native applications built using containers and with microservices. That’s where observability comes in. As software architectures become more complex, observability has become an essential part of the testing environment to help identify and resolve issues early on in the development life cycle. Ultimately, testing and observability share the same goal: To make sure systems are running smoothly.
