In a certain sense, there is a paradox inherent in software testing within a DevOps organization. On the one hand, DevOps emphasizes the importance of continuous testing starting early in the software delivery cycle (which means shifting testing to the “left”). On the other hand, DevOps also encourages continuous feedback loops so that developers learn quickly about problems that [...]

Even though unit tests may seem so simple that they're not worth thinking much about, it's critical to make sure you [...]

If you’re a DevOps engineer, you might not think of software testing as a major part of your job. After all, the core mission of DevOps is to combine development and IT operations; testing and quality assurance are not usually a central part of the DevOps conversation (unless, of course, you are talking about QAOps).
