“Automated Testing: The Glue That Holds DevOps Together” to learn about the key role automated testing plays in a DevOps workflow, brought to you in partnership with Sauce Labs.

Make sure you didn't miss anything with this list of the Best of the Week in the DevOps Zone (July 11 to July 17). Here they are, in order of popularity:

1. What is DevOps? Even the Thought Leaders Can’t Agree!

Then we hit this issue of how do you create a definition of DevOps that is not too far away from the folks doing the work, but is still meaningful to the whole organization. We even talked a bit about how the name “Dev” “Ops” may be causing confusion!

2. Are We Thinking About DevOps Wrong? It’s Not About Culture – It’s About Management!

Strong management leads a company and DevOps requires leadership. It takes organizations saying that the increased cost and time right now will be worth it because it will help us move faster in the future. A core part is how to convey to leadership the value of DevOps.

3. Java Debuggers and Timeouts

So you've been coding away merrily on a project and everything is going well until a bug appears. You reach into your developer's toolbox and pull out a debugger. It's great - you can set breakpoints, you can interrupt when there's an exception and you can inspect expressions at runtime.

4. Test Attribute #2 - Readability

We often forget the most of the value we get from tests come after we’ve written them. Sure, TDD helps design the code, but when everything works for the first time, our tests become the guardians of our code. Once in place, we can change the code, hopefully for the better, knowing that everything still works.

5. Docker 1.1 Released with a New "Ignore" Feature

This update contains improvements through the entire Docker ecosystem--and it's both impressive and hopeful to see this kind of broad attention within a minor update so close in time to a major release. Good on them.
