End-to-End test architectures, a dead End road

Roy Braam is founder of OpenValue Amsterdam. He loves Java, DevOps, and everything that comes with developing good solutions. Besides developing, as an architect, he loves software architecture and solving “the bigger’ puzzle. As a hobby you can find him in the Dojo where he is doing karate.

With the rise of Distributed Architecture, independent DevOps teams and automated CI/CD the End-to-End test environments needs to be reconsidered.

They become flaky, shaky, untrustworthy and hard to maintain. Why are End-to-End test environments a dead End road and what are the alternatives.

Why are people still using these so called ‘production-like’ test environments and how can we achieve the same level of software quality without them.

I will give some ideas on how to solve the testing problems in a different way being less depending on those fragile environments. Let’s see how I can make you

question these environments and how to deliver quality software without them.

After attending this talk I hope people are questioning the end-2-end test environments and have some ideas on how deliver without it.
