Build breakers, not gatekeepers!

Session en anglais - Intermédiaire

Traditional software development occurs in phases, where QA, security and other roles act as gatekeepers to production. This leads to silos, delays and doesn’t scale.

So, instead of waiting for a human to decide what is and isn’t valid, learn how to use automation to continuously enforce standards in your software. Let’s turn gatekeepers into build breakers!

Congratulations, you failed!

Session en anglais - Intermédiaire

Everything fails all of the time. Failure happens, failure is inevitable. It’s how you respond that matters. 

For a lot of people, failure has a negative connotation. I don’t see failure as being the opposite of success. I think failure is an opportunity!

Join me on a journey to discover more about pain, happy little accidents, trial and error, learning opportunities and resilience.

It's time to start embracing failure!
