Morphing all the diverse roles in software engineering to just have all programmers on team leads losing knowledge present with people who understand different facets of creating software. 3. Leaving testing to the end of a project is not a solution either.
It includes my observation regards to position in my career. You have to work on skills instead of chasing only a position without any effort. Sometimes people get a position but are unable to manage it due to skills and never try to overcome it and problems begin from here.

Organizations are now very much concerned about reliability. To improve reliability organizations must ensure resiliency in addition with other factors like functionality performance stability usability accessibility. Reliability is now one of the top priorities for the organization as it ensures superior end-user experience which in turn creates trust and confidence. As a result organizations can create their own brand identity and survive for longer period. Organizations are now conducting continuous chaos testing to ensure resilience and understand how the system handles failure for better reliability. Overall continuous chaos testing not only ensure resiliency but also assists to learn from the failures. Learning from failures also assist in reliability. In this blog I will talk about how continuous resiliency testing assists application/product owners in steady learning from the failures.
