Make sure you didn't miss anything with this list of the Best of the Week in the DevOps Zone (March 27 - April 03). Here they are, in order of popularity:

1. What Limitations Does Automated Testing Present?

  • While test automation does have some limitations, it can still be valuable for an agile organization to adopt for its software development processes. By understanding these restrictions, QA teams can better plan for them and leverage automated testing effectively.

2. Git Pre-Commit Hook That Fails if "it.only" Used (Jest/Jasmine)

  • One of the annoying things with Jest is that while it enables you to run only a single test by using it.only, it does not report this in any noticeable way. Thus you can end up in the same situation as we did, not running many tests without knowing it. (Oh yeah, if we only did review the code properly …).

3. Getting Started with DevOps

  • How can you best manage your new app in production, helping it grow and succeed as best you can? In this article, I wanted to share some insight into helping to cost-effectively give your application the best start in life. I’ve taken products that we’ve used in building Raygun.io (disclosure, it’s one of the apps I recommend too!) that have helped us keep our hair and sanity.

4. Is Polyglot Programming a Good Thing?

  • You have a lot of technologies on your CV in your last role. Java, Python, Scala, Node. What are your thoughts on Polyglot programming? Is it a good or a bad thing?

5. Code and Other Reviews (a Small Piece of Advice)

  • Many teams have some sort of very regular reviews. I’m not thinking personnel reviews or budget reviews, I’m thinking code reviews specifically but it could be test reviews, documentation reviews or some other. Reviews that need to happen every day but which frequently get delayed.
