Continuous static analysis or how to keep your code healthy without waste

Talk

Russian

Frequently we have a deal with “legacy code”, full of bad smells, anti-patterns and potential defects. We gather and manage Technical Debt to get rid of such code where possible or at least improve it somehow. This is usually very wasteful process, because knowledge is lost as time passed, context of changes is unclear and code is not protected with reliable tests. In this talk we will go through more efficient approaches, supported with appropriate tools and practices, to make code care a continuous process achieving controlled balance between speed and code quality.

DevOps checklist or how to understand where is your team in DevOps landscape

Talk

Russian

DevOps is a hot topic during last several years. Some companies, teams and products have achieved quite impressive results in this area making cultural changes, transforming their processes and practices, introducing new roles, tools and techniques. At the same time there is no common approach for measuring achievements and understanding “how DevOps” the current team/company is. In this talk I will provide attendees with basic checklist to start with and some reliable tools/techniques to monitor progress of “DevOps transformation”.
