Programmable Infrastructure Needs Testing Too20 Mar 2017
Programmable infrastructure is similar to software, and needs testing too.
I’ve written a post over at the OpenCredo blog about Testing Programmable Infrastructure.
Here’s the skinny:
Programmable infrastructure is similar to software, and needs testing too. In this article, I argue that I describe some of the unique challenges the industry faces in adopting infrastructure testing: both cultural and technical. I end by pointing out where we can go from here: we need to talk about it more, identify best practice, and improve our tooling.
This is also the basis for my talk “Testing Programmable Infrastructure”, which I presented at QCon and a few meetups around London. You can see a video of the talk here.
