DiUS is excited to announce that Beth Skurrie, one of our Principal Consultants, has been selected as a speaker at this year’s YOW! Conference.

Beth will be among international experts and development talent such as Linda Liukas, co-founder of Rails Girls and author of children’s coding book Hello Ruby, and Big Data and Cloud Architect, Lynn Langit.

We’re also a gold sponsor of YOW! Conference in Sydney and Melbourne in 2017. The YOW! Conference is always a popular event for DiUS and this year 27 of our team will be attending the conference and workshops.

In Beth’s talk, ‘Test smart, not hard and deliver customer value faster’, she shares her insider knowledge on contract testing:

“It’s 2017 and we’re all doing microservices and continuous delivery now (yay!). Except, somehow with all of this betterness we’re not able to create more value to our customers as fast as we should.

In this talk, I’ll discuss the fallout from the post-Monolithic era, a key to understanding why we are where we are. I’ll discuss why integration testing is bad for your health, how to deal with legacy architectures and how to truly optimise delivery for the entire value chain.”

Beth became a developer not because she particularly likes computers, but because she loves to solve problems and make things that are useful. Her involvement with the open source project, Pact, has led to speaking opportunities at conferences around Australia such as YOW! Conference 2017.

Beth’s favourite things to do at work are talking about Pacts, deleting code (and creating talks).

Please come and say hello to the many DiUS team members attending the event and don’t miss  Beth’s talk.
