The idea to integrate code several times a day in the master branch may seem difficult or even scary. At first glance, this seems vulnerable to many problems, which would result in the introduction of countless errors in the mainline code. However, as many development teams experienced, there is no need for fear; it works! The code segments used at a given time are very small and therefore easier to [...]

Through time, organizations acknowledged the necessity of Software Testing and the cost of placing this phase at the last stages of the Software Development Lifecycle. It is important to implement testing in the early stages because late discovered bugs require much more effort, time and money to be fixed. In many cases, a critical error detected at the very end of the lifecycle causes a delay on product release that results in a major loss. There are also cases where detection of a bug causes the software to be binned since it’s not even worth the effort to fix the [...]
