DevOps is a practice that emphasizes the collaboration and communication of both software developers and other information-technology (IT) professionals while automating the process of software delivery and infrastructure changes. While DevOps might mean different things to different organizations, there is an emerging core of best practices that furthers its goals of enhanced collaboration to produce better software. To achieve the cutting-edge speed and agility promised by DevOps, you need to have the right combination of practice and tools to enable automation across all aspects of development, production, and operations.
Here Prajeesh will be sharing the ideas of infrastructure testing in detail and how DevOps teams can benefit by having infrastructure testing.

Otherwise, these products will not survive a competitive market system. How can developers determine that they are building a technically good product that meets the requirements of the end-users?

They will do this by discussing practical processes, cases and examples.
