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.
