“With DevOps, quality becomes everybody’s concern. In theory, that’s great news. However, there’s a great Chinese proverb which translates to “The shared courtyard never gets swept”. If something is everybody’s problem, then it’s really no one’s problem. And therein lies the danger.”

“DevOps is a worthy path to bring the whole business into making better software quicker, and one of the keys to success is test automation. Getting test automation right is one of the strongest indicators that you are a mature DevOps or agile operation and that you will be successful, despite the challenges. As Aristotle wrote, a couple of thousand years before DevOps arrived, “Quality is not an act, it is a habit.”
