TestOps: A Journey to Story-Based Releases

Do you want to know how to make the journey from chaos to streamlined release processes? Continuous deployment of small incremental changes isn’t the exclusive realm of tech giants like Google, Netflix, and Spotify; it’s achievable for you as well! In this experience report, Mazin delves into his journey of implementing a robust release strategy in the public domain. The project began with no release process, a perpetually broken main Git branch, and a mad scramble to fix environments before the product went live. In just one year, he transformed this chaos into story-based releases. The path was paved with practical challenges, and he is eager to share the insights he gained along the way.

Mazin will discuss the challenges he faced with the system architecture: a website with a distributed microservices landscape as the backend, where each microservice had its own repository, there was no test automation, and no testing was done before merging code to the main branch. Each solution brought new challenges. Learn how the project transitioned to a monorepo system, created static dev environments, and later replaced them with ephemeral feature namespaces, allowing them to perform end-to-end testing before merging code.

Born and raised in the Maldives, Mazin moved to the Netherlands at age 13. In High School he was infected by the automation virus when he discovered programming on the graphical calculator. During his studies at university, he also discovered his second passion: teaching. Mazin was trained to teach Physics and Math to High School students. After graduating, Mazin combined both these passions in his work within Capgemini. As a Test Automation Engineer, he can automate to his heart’s desire, and as a Trainer for the Capgemini Academy he teaches courses related to Test Automation.
