Growing Local and Gearing Up for JAX Germany 2018
Software is a global industry, and software quality is a global priority. With offices on four continents and customers in over 194 countries, SmartBear is always looking to meet developers and testers where they live, speaking their language.
At the end of the month, we will be heading to Mainz, Germany for JAX 2018 to speak some Java with hundreds of developers and show off our best software quality tools for teams. We will be showcasing solutions like Collaborator for robust peer code and document review, SwaggerHub for collaborative API design and documentation, and ServiceV Pro for easy API mocking and service virtualization.
If you are attending this conference, make sure to stop by our booth and say hello any time from April 24th-April 26th. We will be showing off our tools and demonstrating how they ensure quality at each stage of the software development lifecycle.
At the conference, SmartBear is hosting a developer session on Wednesday, April 25th (15:00 - 16:00). Damien Walsh and Ronan Trainor, experienced engineers at SmartBear, will be presenting on the topic, “Programming Collaboration into the Software Development Process”.
Every team runs on some level of collaboration. Whether you are sending pull requests, commenting on Jira tickets, or sitting in long project meetings, you rely on feedback to push your development forward. So, how can you program that feedback and collaboration into your development process in a standardized way without it becoming disruptive?
In this session, Damien Walsh and Ronan Trainor will outline actionable strategies that teams can use to unlock the full potential of every workflow, from design and documentation to peer code review and testing. Because effective communication means understanding your role in the conversation, they will also walk through the roles that exist on each team, and how leveraging those roles can lead to clear expectations and better-quality feedback. If your team keeps having the same conversations over and over again, this is a session you won’t want to miss out on.

On Thursday at 14:00, we will be on stage giving away a SNES Classic Edition Nintendo. Stop by our booth to get some SmartBear swag and a raffle ticket.
Wir hoffen, Sie dort zu sehen! (We hope to see you there.)
