In this session, Varuna will share a specific case study of how an effective test strategy can get away from Push and Pray deployment to Continuous and Confident deployment to production.

This is a case study of product, where the very first thing which I observed was unclear roles and responsibilities within QA of an organization. There was a low test coverage as there was no clear testing strategy to follow. Getting deployed to production was Push and Pray method which led to high risk for production.

It was also causing inefficient use of QA timing. There was the pain felt throughout the organization in a smaller group and folks kind of accepted this pain. We started with noting down the pain points of producer and consumer teams within an organizations and even a third party team to come up with an effective test strategy of the product.

Participate in this talk to learn:
1) How we formed a core team to define the external and internal strategy?
2) How did we apply recursive feedback and updated the strategy when and required after a production release?
3) Internal Test Strategy: A strategy within a Team of the same vertical as checkout api and ui
4) External Test Strategy: An end to end test strategy of a product
5) How did it help in getting away from Push and Pray deployment to Continuous and Confident deployment to production?

We got the motivated QAs across the organizations and better quality product with a Test Strategy across an organizations. It had also helped in mapping a QA learning curve with a test strategy within an organizations. Example: As a QA if you would like to learn some tools and techniques of testing you could volunteer to help the other team which are using those tools and techniques and in long term, you could switch the team if it matches
