Developing and running modern software systems requires teams of motivated and well-trained people; however, most IT books are written for the individual technologist. The Team Guide series from Skelton Thatcher Publications takes a team-first approach to software systems with the aim of empowering whole teams to build and operate software systems more effectively.

  3. Use risk and incident data to remedy architectural design problems which inhibit feedback from testing
  4. Adopt ephemeral development environments to diversify testing techniques early and create shorter feedback loops
  5. Utilise events and metrics to model risks in production for continuous improvement of your test strategy
  6. Adopt incident postmortems to maintain a testability focus as part of your team’s continuous improvement strategy
