Quality in an Agile world
Over the past two decades, software has infiltrated virtually every aspect of our lives. As a result, software professionals need to design, develop, test and ship our product in ever shortening cycles, making it more a service than a traditional off-the-shelf product. Yet while Cloud Computing has unleashed tremendous capabilities allowing us to scale services to unprecedented size and meet virtually unlimited demand, with a few API call it abstracts away everything but the software itself. As a result, there are massive supporting ecosystems built around concepts such as Software-as-a-Service, Continuous Integration, Continuous Delivery and Test Automation, and practices such as Agile Development, Test-Driven Development, and Micro Service architectures provide a set of guidelines and methodologies that enable us to meet this ever-growing demand for software, delivered faster, with higher quality.
In this session, aimed at Computer Science undergraduates, Alon will survey today's methodologies, best practices, and Application Lifecycle Management processes necessary to build a great service with superb quality. The concept of Continuous Testing will be presented; placing quality at the heart of the daily development cycle and enabling teams to scale without sacrificing quality.
Alon is a software engineer, architect and director of R&D at Sealights (http://www.sealights.io/?pi_campaign_id=730), an Israeli startup that is building the first Continuous Testing platform and has just launched from stealth into open beta.
Alon holds an MBA (the Global MBA / Innovation and Entrepreneurship track) and BA (cum laude, awarded the Efi Arazi scholarship) in Computer Science from IDC. Prior to joining Sealights, he served multiple senior positions at Varonis Systems (NASDAQ: VRNS), and co-founded CodeRun, a startup that built a full-fledged web-based Integrated Development Environment.
