Renee Lung

> Speakers

Andrew Kirkpatrick will be speaking about behaviour testing for single-page apps and API's. With modern web applications and API's often existing in separate codebases, using a Behavioural testing framework you can create tests in ubiquitous domain language that cover both front-end and back-end contexts to ensure your application does what it should.

Renee Lung will be speaking about test-driven approach to scaling infrastructure for enterprise from a chaos engineering and DevOps perspective. More specifically, she'll discuss the project from conception to execution and lessons learned.

> Goals

ExploreTech Toronto is about exploring and celebrating diversity in the tech industry - in the technology we use, the roles and people. You will get a chance to hear from a variety of speakers who are working on interesting technical projects. We will feature speakers in different roles from Developers (front-end, backend, devops & Ops), Project Owners, and Designers.

Our focus is in creating technical speaking opportunities for new speakers in Toronto’s technology community and to help achieve true gender balance within our local tech leadership. Our events will showcase at least 50% female speakers.

> Speakers

Highly experienced devs/POs/designers in tech willing to share their expertise & experiences through 15-20 minute presentations.

Come join us for some food, drinks, mingling & listen to some interesting talks!
