Steps You Should Be Automating in the SDLC - Part 2
DEVOPSdigest asked experts from across the IT industry for their opinions on what steps in the SDLC should be automated. Part 2 covers the coding process.
"The most straightforward and valuable area to automate is the build, deploy. These tasks provide the greatest opportunity to remove waste and also highlight potential friction points when deploying into production. Removing people from these activities not only increases quality but improves the architecture by shining a spotlight on the way in which the software is constructed. Great way to test this automation is to get EVERYONE in the team to do the build and NOT leave it to a single person, or small group. That would ensure that the kick off process is simple, documented and with luck transparent to everyone."
