Where is QA in DevOps

Kaspar van Dam en ik hebben een artikel geschreven voor In SQ Mag rondom het thema Quality Assurance in DevOps

Samenvatting:
This issue of SQ Mag focusses on DevOps. But why does a magazine related to Software Quality even pay attention to DevOps? Simply put, there’s no mention of Software Quality or Quality Assurance within the term. It’s simply DEVelopment and OPerationS. So, isn’t DevOps the final death blow for QA and testing? Should this be an obituary for the profession of testing? A final farewell to Quality Assurance? Or do we still need software testing and QA in a DevOps future? To answer these questions we’ll be taking a look at how DevOps came to be and what role (exploratory) testing can play within the DevOps mindset.
