We've never had time to Test All The Things before releasing updates to production. So how can we feel confident to release updates weekly or even daily with continuous delivery (CD)? Automating regression tests is already a challenge. What about all the other critical testing activities we need to do to make sure our product doesn't turn into a roadblock for customers?

In this session, Lisa will introduce some new tools and frameworks that will help your team work together to overcome testing challenges and succeed with CD. These include:

* Ways to visualize your CD pipeline so the team can find ways to shorten feedback loops and mitigate risks

* How to use a test suite canvas to discuss what questions each step in your CD pipeline needs to answer, to understand the value each step provides

* How to make sure all essential types of testing are done continually, and how to fit testing into the continuous world.

There IS a “test” in DevOps! Let’s explore it together.
