Hey Catherine, as we know that a combination of Development and Operations, the term DevOps describes the practice of combining the important functions of developing and operating software applications through unified platforms. Now typically, a devops lifecycle consists following stages:
- Continuous Development
- Continuous Testing
- Continuous Integration
- Continuous Deployment
- Continuous Monitoring
Now the Continuous Testing phase requires efficient testing tools and for that QA team uses tools like Selenium to identify and fix bugs in the new piece of code. The testing provides further information about different aspects of the application, which in turn, can again be sent to the development process to improve the application.
