DevOps Puts A Huge Emphasis On Test Quality

While DevOps promises to drastically reduce delivery cycles, hasty deployment entails the hazard of propagating a regression bug into production due to lack of sufficient testing. Statement coverage is the most popular metric to determine the adequacy of a test suite. However, this metric is known to be a poor indicator of a test suite's capacity to detect bugs.

At EclipseCon Europe next October, STAMP project coordinator Benoit Baudry will introduce and illustrate the benefits of another metric for test suite quality: the mutation score. Click on the boarding pass above for more on what to expect from STAMP in Ludwisgburg. 

Why adopt a new testing suite? Share our Commit Strip to convince the developers and experts around you to give STAMP a try :)
