Test all the things! Improving code quality at the OU with Continuous Integration.

The Open University’s Moodle-based VLE supports a network of over 5,000 tutors delivering modules to over 100,000 students worldwide. The VLE platform is maintained by a team of developers delivering 4 releases each year.

This talk will discuss how we make use of our recently developed Continuous Integration system to support agile development practices, ensuring a consistent level of quality in released code. It will also explore our supporting infrastructure and broader quality assurance practices.
