BOSTON, September 12, 2018 —Perfecto, the leading continuous testing and monitoring platform for optimizing DevOps pipelines, today announced that it will release its second book, Continuous Testing for DevOps Professionals, next week at Jenkins World | DevOps World in San Francisco, CA.

- Fundamentals of Continuous Testing – Features the definition of CT and best practices for planning, analyzing, measuring and orchestration of quality activities throughout the DevOps pipeline.
- Continuous Testing for Web Apps – Dedicated to CT for web applications, including responsive web (RWD), PWAs, headless browsers, accessibility testing 101, Gauge BDD framework, and more.

“Continuous testing helps organizations control risk in light of the increased complexity and speed of modern application delivery,” said Wolfgang Platz, Founder and Chief Strategy Officer at Tricentis and book contributor. “To help organizations achieve CT, and leverage it for future success, it is imperative that CT vendors work collaboratively to help educate and support teams as they move to continuous testing. We’re proud to have this opportunity to work with Perfecto and other thought leaders in our market to do just that.”
“Software is changing constantly and to keep pace, DevOps teams require not only the right tools and resources, but also guidance on how to use them effectively and get the most from their investments,” said Brad Johnson, Vice President of Product Marketing at CloudBees and book contributor. “We are honored to be part of Continuous Testing for DevOps Professionals and pleased that Perfecto is launching it at Jenkins World | DevOps World, where it will be directly in front of the DevOps and Jenkins communities.”
Perfecto will be exhibiting at Jenkins World | DevOps World at booth #124, providing demos of its CT platform and opportunities to win free copies of Continuous Testing for DevOps Professionals.
