16 DevTest Resolution Blogs for 2016 Kickoff... to Auld Lang Syne

Blog Post created by edwsc03 Employee on Dec 11, 2015

Where did 2015 go?  Seriously, I swear it just started.  It doesn’t seem that long ago that we released DevTest 8.0 to song to the theme of “12 Days of DevTest.”

 

Well folks, back by popular demand, the crazy-fun DevTest team is back at it again.  DevTest 9.0 just released to much fanfare.  And to help ring in all its goodness, we’ve decided to blog about it to the theme of “My 9.0 New Years Resolutions” with 16 blogs for 2016.  And lucky for you, these blogs will run through January to help you keep the "resolve" in your resolutions around Service Virtualization, Continuous Application Insight, Application Test, Test Data Manager, and Test Case Optimizer. 

 

To kick things off, I’ve decided to have fun with the New Year’s song sung ‘round the globe … Auld Lang Syne.  This traditional song is often used to bid farewell to the old year at the stroke of midnight, and welcome in the new year.  I’ve taken the lyrics (which are always so hard to remember) and put them to the rhyme of a new song… The DevTest Song. 

 

Go ahead, and sing the tune in your head as your read about why you should utilize the Continuous Delivery solutions in CA’s DevTest portfolio in 2016!!

DevTest Song (to tune of Auld Lang Syne)

New Year’s Eve Song Auld Lang Syne

Should broken code be forgot,


And dev delays every day and night?


Should constraints get in your way

And fees be paid to partner sites?

 

Chorus:

For fast delivery with quality


For testing day and night?

We help you achieve Continuous Delivery


For industries far and wide.

 

We’ve just announced our new release

And SV on Azure is fine,

It simulates missing components

For all mankind!

 

For RabbitMQ, and IBM too


For any protocols you’ve seen,


We give you the beauty of ODP

For DNA Sequencing in Developing.

 

And don’t forgot, there’s so much more

That came out with DevTest 9,

Microservices become a reality with

TestDoubles & Docker install as storylines.

 

Chorus:

For fast delivery with quality


For testing day and night?

We help you achieve Continuous Delivery


For industries far and wide.

 

Should old test methods be used in DevOps,


And test cases written by sight?

No! CAI builds regression tests with fidelity

So you’ll never test in the blind.

 

Should testing data be pulled from ops

Racking up PII fines?

Synthetic test data from TDM helps you here

Saving years of jail time.

 

And integrations across the board

TCO & TDM with SV and Rally

We’re working fast to arm app teams,

With the best solutions worldwide.

 

For all these DevTest pains, my friend

We solve them left and right,

We even integrate with Perfecto Mobile.

Giving your mobile apps a bug free life.

 

Chorus:

For fast delivery with quality


For testing day and night?

We help you achieve Continuous Delivery


For industries far and wide.

Should old acquaintances be forgotten,

And never brought to mind?

Should old acquaintances be forgotten,

And days of long ago!

 

 

For old long ago, my dear

For old long ago,

We will take a cup of kindness yet

For old long ago.

 

We two have run about the hillsides


And pulled the daisies fine,


But we have wandered many a weary foot


For old long ago.



 

We two have paddled (waded) in the stream


From noon until dinner time,


But seas between us broad have roared


Since old long ago.



 

And there is a hand, my trusty friend,


And give us a hand of yours,


And we will take a goodwill draught (of ale)


For old long ago!



 

And surely you will pay for your pint,


And surely I will pay for mine!


And we will take a cup of kindness yet


For old long ago!

 

Yup, that’s just the start of the 16 DevTest Resolution Blogs for 2016.  It’s gonna be a fun ride.

 

And my one ask of each of you is to check out this upcoming Dec.15th Lunch n Learn session -- "It's 2015, Why are You Still Manually Writing Tests?"  You'll learn some great stuff!  And have a Happy 2016!
