One important capability in our QA strategy is to run smoke tests against remote service endpoints, to check that they are healthy. In this article, we share our approach, walking you through some examples.
Welcome aboard: Meet QA lead Tatjana Statescu
As a skilled QA engineer with former positions in software companies in Austria, the UK, and Belgium, Tatjana brings a wealth of experience to the AURENA Tech team. Her areas of expertise include establishing quality processes and encouraging a common mindset for quality in our team.
“The AURENA Tech team has developed a high-quality and stable product, while also being very open to innovating and experimenting. I look forward to improving the existing processes further: speeding up delivery times without losing quality, with an accent upon built-in quality,” explains Tatjana.
“We are committed to shipping high-quality, reliable products that excite our users. Tatjana brings a new level of expertise to the team and will boost our efforts to integrate QA in every stage of development,” says Jürgen Blematl, Director AURENA Tech.
Until recently our engineering team was exclusively using Gitlab shared runners for our CI/CD pipelines. While they did (and partly still do) get the job done, recent outages have made us aware of how critical functioning CI/CD is to us in our day-to-day work.
