How Continuous Delivery impacts testing


Most teams introducing Continuous Delivery face problems such as "How do we fit our 4-day QA phase into a daily release rhythm?"

The transition to a DevOps strategy and Continuous Delivery usually requires a significant readjustment of the testing approach.

Alex shares stories from various companies he worked for, and discusses different ideas on how to retrofit testing for frequent releases. This includes adapting the rhythm of testing, test techniques, scope of testing, and re-thinking the entire quality assurance approach.


Alex works as an Agile Coach for HERE, a Nokia business, in Berlin. His journey in the IT industry started 20 years ago as a programmer. Over the years he assumed many different roles (tech lead, team lead, release manager, lean manager) in different companies and organizations.

Alex main focus is to deliver value to production quickly, so he was working on evangelizing and introducing Continuous Delivery, DevOps and Agile Testing in enterprises. From 2008-2010 he was leading the release management of the eBay company in Germany, the largest online market place for selling vehicles in Germany. In 2011 Alex joined HERE, a Nokia business, in Berlin/Germany, and was leading a delivery team for three years, which is responsible for multiple REST services hosted in the cloud. In March 2014 he switched to the role of an Agile Coach and Change Agent for HERE.
