This meetup will be a crossover between the front-end and backend as Billy will present on contract driven development. Following his talk, we will have a workshop where we practice the principles presented in a sample Angular app.
Collaborative Contract Driven Development:
Are you transition to microservices, do you have remote teams, are you wanting to update existing services, are you doing all three? The consistent theme in all of these needs is that they require collaboration across teams and concerns. A common problem however with collaboration is that there is often a lot of wait time. Team A needs for team B to implement and deploy a service, update a service, or figure out why a service isn’t working correctly, this can be a very frustrating process and instead of collaborating you feel like you are competing! There is a better way, though, and that is with contract driven development!
