"What I tend to see is that the software testers tend to be very interested in it and work to incrementally develop and test the software. What I have yet to see is very much in the way of systems testers in the Agile community adopting shift left and, for that matter, the same sort of thing applies when we are talking about operational testers in the DevOps community."
