Automated testing for a developer typically starts with unit tests, which even if you don't subscribe to TDD, you've written at least one of them just to see what all the fuss was about. Like me, I'm sure you saw that testing complex logic at build time has huge advantages in terms of quality and taking risks. However, even with the most comprehensive tests at 100% coverage, you've still got more work to do on your journey towards a bug-free existence.

Given that most modern applications rely on a wide variety of cloud platform services, testing can't stop with the fakes and mocks...good integration testing is where it's at to get you the rest of the way. Integration testing is nothing new of course, it's just more...

Fast iterations can be very valuable to the software development process, but make for more time spent doing deployments and testing. Also, more deployments means more opportunities to accidentally introduce breaking changes into your API.
