When everything is firing on all cylinders, DevOps can be awesome. By automating every application build – from development and QA, to pre-release testing and eventually to production – DevOps lets you release new code as frequently as your business needs to instead of continuously delayed releases. This, in turn, enables you to resolve issues and make important improvements with lightning speed, keeping you agile and helping you meet customer needs (and expectations) as well as respond to new challenges in a competitive landscape.
We’d like to first thank you for being our users and believing in our mobile DevOps vision. In October we will start using the new domain – https://cloud.bitbar.com for public cloud access, calling it the last step of rebranding from Testdroid.
We are excited to announce that Bitbar Testing Cloud, the most scalable mobile app testing solution, is now available on Amazon Web Service (AWS) Marketplace. The simplified, automated and accelerated purchasing process for Bitbar Testing on AWS Marketplace enables faster time-to-value services for mobile Dev & Test teams to automate mobile tests at scale and accelerate the delivery of high quality mobile apps to end users.
Like any team in the world, in the past years we have experienced multiple major changes in our development processes, product release cycles, team collaborations and overall company culture. The purpose of making changes is to be better, smarter and faster. As a Product Owner who is tightly tied with DevOps teams for planning, iterating and delivering, I’m really glad to speak publicly and start my journey of sharing our adoptions, changes and learnings in mobile DevOps.
First of all, I hope you all had a great summer.
As most of you have already known, we moved to a faster release schedule back in 2016, wherein we have been managing to deliver new features to all of our users on a bi-weekly basis thanks to keeping on agile practices. That being said, you might have noticed that this time the sprint for the new Bitbar Testing update is longer than usual. Why? Because we have exciting news to announce and it will bring great benefits to everyone down the line.
Container technology and products aren’t new anyhow in mobile development today. The LXCs – Linux containers – which combine certain important kernel components to isolate resources have been around for a decade or so. But to get container technology for everyone the use of popular containerization products such as Docker have helped many of mobile developers to build clean and separated environments where things just work like “on my machine”.
In this blog, we’ll take a look at some technical aspects of containers and how to use those as part of your mobile app testing process.
The Mobile DevOps is a practice of bringing the different disciplines involved in developing, testing, releasing and operating software into a functional inside organizations – or by a team that works closely together. By bringing together developers (Dev) and operations (Ops), the team is able to continuously deliver their product based on continuous feedback and iteration. And as always, there are different practices, habits and different flavors of adopted company cultures that set the behavior for an actual process and daily doing.
In this blog, we’ll take a look at the most common and widely accepted Mobile DevOps ‘process’ with its steps and what those mean. In addition, the focus is to provide insights on how enterprises can get rid of ‘siloes’ inside their organizations for dynamic development, testing, deployment and monitoring.
