I attended The Developers Conference 2017 in Sao Paulo, one of the most important developers conference in Brazil, between July 18 to July 22nd. This was the 11th edition of the event (the event started in 2007 and they also had Burr Sutter and Edson Yanaga as keynote speakers) with 5 days of events and 50+ tracks, ranging from Programming Languages like Java, Python, and others until Big Data, Machine Learning, and Internet of Things. The audience only increases year over year (we expect more than 5000 attendees). I had the chance to help the Red Hat Developers team in the booth, where we launched a campaign to register new users in the Red Hat Developers and presented about the work my team did in the past 2 years.
Cloud-Native development and quality tests
I had a talk in TDC where Filippe Spolti and I talked about our path in the Red Hat Cloud Enablement team to create tests for our containers to get a minimal quality test in our containerization work for our middleware portfolio. We presented CTF and our Arquillian extension ce-arq, our main tools for container testing, and how we can guarantee quality in the images we produce for our middleware products.
The audience loved the subject so much that we had a chance to present again in another day, and people were very interested in how to run the tests and understand the Cloud-Native nature of our job. I was impressed when I saw 100+ testers and developers willing to hear us about software testing and containers. For those who are interested in understanding our testing software tools, I shared the slide deck below:
