Using Data To Drive Your Development Process

William Josephson

Lightning Talk: 10 minutes


Many software teams think of testing as a simple “smoke test” or perhaps an automated GO/NO GO for a release . In actual fact, even simple software test suites are a much richer data source. Simple time series of commit history, test results, and performance results, even for non-performance tests, can provide deeper insight for the release manager. This talk will discuss our experience at Solano Labs with a few of these alternate data sources.
