A techie for almost 10 years (professionally) in the field of web application development/API/CLI , I have had the opportunity to work in various context both technical and organizational, ranging from the old V-cycle to Agile at scale.
I believe that technologies and tools are a mean to serve an overall business view, in a way to make it go faster and bring value to the customers. With that idea in mind I try to be pragmatic about my choices, and use the right tool for the right job and at the right cost keeping quality as my first priority (The only way to keep going fast is to do things "well").
Outside of my working hours I constantly contribute to OSS projects on different languages/technos and subjects ((Go, NodeJs, Kafka; K8S / Cloud, Graph db, maven ...). I'm part of the meetup: https://www.meetup.com/Paris- Hackergarten/.
Who never heard about writing tests? But who really does? What are your excuses? Do you really know how to write clean and robust tests?
In this session, we will cover a lot of ways to write tests, starting from unit tests up to end-to-end, and if we have time, maybe load tests, all in a good and fancy TDD style using a lot of technologies (JUnit, Mockito, Test Containers, Gatling..., CI/CD).
After this talk, you'll be very confident to write tests, and also defend them in propagating the good practices among your company.
