Creating A More Sustainable Development Team with Angular and the PAMstack
In this talk, we'll discuss the ideas around how to create a sustainable architecture for your team through the PAMstack, a new framework for creating inclusive development teams. We'll talk about some of the abstractions and tools that Angular has to enable the longevity and success of your teams to support junior developers, designers, project managers, and more. No application is too critical, complicated, or obscure to be able to achieve this.
We will also talk through how you can build a corresponding culture that allows inclusivity on your team, and why this is so critical to your business. We'll walk through processes you can incorporate, team roles, and how you can build a better template for the future.
Frontend Testing: Mapping Out the Territory
Frontend testing is impossible! I don’t have time for it! It makes my productivity tank! My manager won’t allow me to do it!
These are all excuses for not writing tests for your frontend code. In the interest of time, I will focus on the real reasons - I don’t know how, I’m afraid to start - and alleviate the fear by just writing tests and showing how easy it is.
I will give a recipe that you can follow to ease your fear of the unknown—writing tests. I will discuss the various kinds of testing and how they fit together in a coherent way, but most importantly - I will give sample code that you can use as a template in your own project.
From the olden days of DOS, to the contemporary world of Software Testing, Gil Tayar was, is, and always will be, a software developer. He has in the past co-founded WebCollage, survived the bubble collapse of 2000, and worked on various big cloudy projects at Wix. His current passion is figuring out how to test software, a passion which he has turned into his main job as Evangelist and Senior Architect at Applitools. He has religiously tested all his software, from the early days as a junior software developer to the current days at Applitools, where he develops tests for software that tests software, which is almost one meta layer too many for him.
