According to the results of a new global study, commissioned by CA Technologies, 72% of organizations have implemented some aspect of DevOps but when the study took a closer look at the numbers, only 20% of DevOps users have put all the parts in place to reap the full benefits of DevOps. Unlike many IT-related concepts, DevOps doesn't revolve around a specific type of technology, and it can't be classed as a methodology either. Indeed, DevOps generally requires blending a number of different technologies, skill-sets, tools and methods.

The Importance of Unit Testing in C++

Unit testing is a best practice in any modern methodology, including Agile development. With automatic unit testing in place, if we introduce a bug into the software, one or more tests will fail and we'll know about it immediately. We've been writing in C++ for almost 30 years now, and we use software development tools, which improved over time. Yet, because of the intricacies of C++ and its different variants, testing tools did not become as advanced as Microsoft's Visual Studio .NET tools, or Eclipse for Java. For example, the testing tooling for C++ in Visual Studio lags behi... (more)
