Speakers

Talia Nassi
Lead Developer Advocate @ Akamai Technologies

Testing in Production

It’s become standard practice for test engineers to test their code in a staging environment, fix all inconsistencies there, andthen deploy to production. In this waterfall process, testers have no visibility into what’s happening in production. The future ofsoftware testing has no staging environments, they test in production. Testing in production is a proactive approach to testingas you ensure your features work in the environment that your features will live in, not a dummy environment. In this talk, learnabout feature flagging, canary releases, setting up a proper CI/CD pipeline, and data cleanup. At the end of the day, we don'tcare if your features work in staging, we care if they work in production.

Adrián Bolonio
Accessibility Software Engineering @ GitHub

Testing Web Accessibility

Web Accessibility is not just keyboard navigation, color contrast, or screen readers. Accessibility is a perfect indicator of the quality of a website. When a website is accessible, it usually means that it's inclusive, usable, offers a great user experience for everyone, and is also fast.Our role as developers is to create clear interfaces for people to understand and care about data, regardless of their disabilities, but we often forget to make sure that the code we write complies with the "Web Content Accessibility Guidelines" (WCAG), and the only way to achieve this is through tests, either manual or automated.

Adrián Bolonio

Adrian is currently working as an Accessibility Software Engineering at GitHub as part of a talented, diverse, and motivated team that will work on making GitHub and the Internet a better and more accessible place for everyone. When he's not at the office he enjoys a good read, working my way through any delicious recipe, and indulging his love for travelling to new places.

Principles over Practices - the important part of agile

I’ve found that many teams and organisations are doing agile practices but don’t get much out of it, because we don’t fully understand the principles it’s built on. This presentation dives into the principles behind agile (and lean), and then put those principles into practical use that you can start using tomorrow.

He spent 2 years working for the Salvation Army in Indonesia to help the health services there to become more effective. Right now he's working as head of curriculum at School of Applied Technology where we create the next generation agile developers. He has also written two books; Kanban in Action and Salvation: The Bungsu Story both on how to get agile to work in practice."
