Shift left. Continuous integration and continuous delivery (CI/CD). Continuous deployment. DevOps. What is all this stuff and what does it mean for you as a tester? In this keynote speech, delivered at SOFTEC 2017 in Kuala Lumpur, Rex Black explains these concepts and their test implications. He describes the emerging role of the SDET (Software Development Engineering in Test, also called a Technical Tester or Technical Test Analysts) and what these technically-oriented testers do. Yes, being an SDET is about test automation, but it’s about a lot more than that, and Rex gives examples of what you can expect to do in a shift left world over the coming decade. Don’t worry. Life as a tester in the shift-left reality is gonna be fun and exciting, and Rex gives you some ideas how.
