This session will discuss how you can begin building a practice of continuous testing your IBM Z Applications to introduce Shift Left Testing. We will show how to automate testing in a CI/CD Pipeline across hybrid cloud applications from unit testing to application integration testing to end-2-end testing. We will show how you can liberate your testing from test environment and test data constrains, and we will use IBM’s zUnit, IBM Z Virtual Test Platform as well as Galasa to achieve this.

Anybody with experience in this matter, are encourage to participate and share their experience, so we all can learn from each other.
