Talk #3: Introduction to 'Breeze': the super productive Airflow development environment
Speaker: Jarek Potiuk, Principal Software Engineer at Polidea & Airflow committer

Abstract:
Here's a description of the talk from Jarek: "This talk is mainly about making life better for developers of Apache Airflow. It’s been born out of frustrations of first-time Airflow developers we had when we joined the project almost a year ago. As we remember it now - the time it took to setup the test and development environment was counted in days rather than minutes. Also, it was not easy to understand how we can easily iterate over tests, how we can effectively run tests in different variants of the Airflow environment and how to make sure that what we submit a PR that will flawlessly pass Travis CI builds. Since we had a team working on Airflow, we had to figure out how to efficiently share the environment between the developers in our team. Initially, we developed a really nice development environment for ourselves just to speed up our work, but we understood others have the same problems, so we decided to bring the experience we had into the mainstream of Airflow development."
