In response to accelerated release cycles, a new set of testing capabilities is now required to deliver quality at speed. This is why there is a shake-up in the testing tools landscape—and a new leader has emerged in the just released Gartner Magic Quadrant for Software Test Automation.

Make sure you didn't miss anything with this list of the Best of the Week in the DevOps Zone (June 27 to July 3). Here they are, in order of popularity:

2. The Four Best Refactorings

Given that refactorings change program structure without altering behaviour, the purpose of any refactoring must be the improvement of program structure. So how do programmers, "Best," improve structure?

3. Stop Unit Testing Database Code

Now that this has been established, let’s have a look at a blog post by Marco Behler, in which he elaborates on various options when testing database code, with respect to transactionality. Testing database transactions is even harder than just testing database code.

4. OWASP Top 10 Risks: #1: Injection

5. PagerDuty and Incident Management — DevOps Days Austin

I'm picking back up the series I started last month, DevOps Days Austin. Today’s interview features Arup Chakrabarti of PagerDuty who presented at DevOps days and leads PagerDuty’s Ops engineering team. Take a listen.
