A Message from Andrew Binstock, Editor-in-Chief, Dr. Dobb's
The cloud is being used most by development organizations as a build and test platform. It is ideally suited to running large testing storms, performing large-scale code analysis, hosting continuous integration servers, as well as building multiple product versions in parallel without tying up the principal build drive train.
Using the cloud as this adjunct to in-house development delivers many benefits, but it requires thought and planning to achieve the desired results. Without this thoughtful approach, the cloud becomes just another complicating factor for the development and test organizations. This event explores how best to use the cloud for build, test and CI and - in the Dr. Dobb's tradition - the sessions present practical, hands-on, immediately usable information and guidance.
Who should attend:
IT and Business Leaders
CTOs, CIOs and CISOs
What you'll learn:
The ins and outs of today's PaaS providers, how the software development, testing, and deployment lifecycle changes around the use of cloud development, and how to avoid the pitfalls and take advantage of the opportunities.
How to handle unique problems surrounding the testing of Web applications on the cloud, particularly those with complex user interfaces
How public and private clouds can be used to improve CI and how a fully automated deployment process on top of cloud infrastructure can help move an organization from CI to continuous delivery
The reasons for running testing in the cloud rather than locally, and the actual process for testing
