Buildkite Eradicates “Nightmare” Flaky Coding Tests for Developers With Revolutionary New Tool
Buildkite launches Test Analytics, an industry-leading tool to identify and eliminate problematic testing, saving developers and businesses time, money and effort.
MELBOURNE, Australia, June 2, 2022 / PRNewswire / – A new tool that changes the game BuildkiteAn industry-leading CI / CD platform used by Shopify, Venmo, Wayfair and Pinterest, is launched today, promising to solve one of the biggest and most costly problems in software development: flaky testing.
The new Buildkite product Test analytics accelerates the delivery channels of DevOps engineers by eliminating waste in the development process. The tool works seamlessly with the Buildkite CI / CD platform and integrates with any CI system, including CircleCI, GitHub Actions, and Jenkins, providing continuous real-time performance tracking and information for test suites. These statistics help software development teams identify, optimize, and solve unreliable and unreliable tests faster than ever before, freeing teams to focus on fixing bugs and deploying new features.
According to recent study, 59% of developers deal with scaly testing on a daily, weekly, or monthly basis. On the Buildkite platform alone, more than 800 million seconds (25 years) of scaly testing are manually re-run by developers each month. Buildkite’s CI / CD platform helps developers run software quickly and reliably, with test and deployment tools that work for all software projects, whether it’s to create mobile applications, background applications, or custom hardware.
Tim Lucasco-founder and co-CEO of Buildkite, he said“Scaly and unreliable testing is a nightmare for the developer world. There are three traditional ways to deal with the problem. The first is to devote an excessive amount of time and energy to identifying the root cause of a scaly test. The second is to run your test repeatedly until it fails, wasting computing power and increasing costs, and the third is to completely ignore the error, which makes developers unhappy and erodes confidence throughout your life. testing and delivery process.
“With Test Analytics, developers can adjust the performance of their test sets to identify problems more quickly from clear vision and analysis. Development teams not only have access to build a stable, high performance, but now they have the tools to make their own test suites faster and less scaly. “
A clear dashboard within Test Analytics shows the slowest and least reliable tests, prioritizing the most critical solutions. Historical views and trend charts provide more information on diagnosing recurring problems. User-defined thresholds provide granularity to define slow or unreliable tests and to create custom alerts. Integrations with commonly used test frameworks allow for in-depth inspection of where testing takes time, from long-term database queries to exhausted API calls.
