I did a talk recently at the Sydney Alt.Net Meetup on testing practices for Continuous Delivery.

The talk was an introductory tour of the Continuous Delivery ecosystem, as it relates to technical practices such as TDD (for example, xUnit Test Patterns) and software architecture for testability. You can find the slides on Slideshare.

In an initial post on architectural quality factors, we describe the...

availability, modifiability, performance, security, testability, and usability

... of software intensive systems [Bass et al, 2013].

The goal of Continuous Delivery is for systems to be able to 'continuously demonstrate their state of production readiness' [ . . .

The architecture of specification subsystems has always been critical to quality factors like cycle time -

Industry estimates indicate that between 30 and 50 percent (or in some cases, even more) of the cost of developing well-engineered systems is taken up by testing. If the software architect can reduce this cost, the payoff is large. . . .
