The focus of the presentation is the activities known as testing in production. With the increasing speed of deliveries and shorten times from development to production there is a need to understand this concept to be able to take informed risk-based decisions on where and how to test. There is normally a fear of testing in production that is mainly built on misconceptions of what it really entails. I will explain activities that go in under that collective name of grouped under releasing, testing and feedback with a brief overview of pre-prod testing in Continuous and DevOps. The presentation will cover the listed activities with real-life examples of each one:
Canarying, Staged rollout, Dark launching, Dogfooding Monitoring and Logging, as well as testing vs. monitoring, User Feedback Analytics, A/B testing and Beta Testing.

The content is a mix of personal experience, shared experience by colleagues within our continuous team and peers within the testing community and studies.

Key takeaways:
  • What Testing in Production is and what it is not 
  • Why might Testing in Production be needed
  • A set of tools or concepts to add to your testing toolbox
