Matt Fellows, co-founder of PactFlow and Principal Product Manager at SmartBear, a leading provider of software development and visibility tools, is presenting, “A comprehensive guide to contract testing with Pact,” at Testing Talks Conference on Thursday, October 12, 2023, in Melbourne.

WHAT: SmartBear’s Matt Fellows presenting on contract testing at Testing Talks Melbourne 

WHEN: Thursday, October 12, 2023, 10:00 a.m. – 10:45 a.m. AEDT 

WHERE: Melbourne Convention Exhibition Center, 1 Convention Centre Pl, South Wharf VIC 3006 

The landscape in which Pact finds itself has significantly shifted from when it was first conceived 10 years ago. From relatively simple RESTful services to the rise of public clouds, IoT, and serverless and event-driven architectures, the world is more distributed and complex than ever before. Matt dives deep into what contract testing is, what problem it solves, how it can be applied in these modern use cases, and most importantly, the audience can see it in action. 

Matt is a core maintainer of Pact and the co-founder and Principal Product Manager of the enterprise contract testing platform PactFlow, acquired by SmartBear in 2022. He is a self-described polyglot who enjoys working at the intersection of technology, humans, and ideas – ideally fully caffeinated. He is passionate about giving back to the tech community, sharing learnings at local meetups and conferences, and contributing to open source. Prior to SmartBear, Matt consulted with and developed products for some of Australia’s largest brands, specializing in cloud computing, true DevOps capability, and continuous delivery.
