A day (or week) at Remediant

  • It’s time for the Monday morning team meeting. You dial in via Zoom. After a round of updates, you are given the release candidate for the next version of the SecureOne software.
  • You review the tickets (JIRA) that is included in this release. You capture them in the release documentation and insure each ticket has appropriate documentation, test cases, or similar for the scope of the ticket.
  • After considering the scope of the release you begin planning augmented testing to better cover some holes in the test coverage provided from engineering, where appropriate you ask engineering for help expanding the test suite as needed.
  • Utilizing additional team members you begin executing all manual, E2E, and automated tests for this RC.
  • Unfortunately there were deficiencies/bugs found during testing so you reject the RC back to development.
  • Once the deficiencies are solved by engineering you begin retesting anything in scope of the changes. You eventually pass the RC, marking testing as done in the release documentation. You inform leadership and product team that the RC is ready, and with their approval promote it to ready for release (Gold).
  • You now begin planning how to make the next release cycle easier by improving the existing test suite and its integration with the CI/CD, gathering input from engineering as you go. You eventually craft specific tests to improve test coverage.
