STARCANADA 2018 Concurrent Session : Integrating Mobile Automation with CI and CD


Thursday, October 18, 2018 - 1:30pm to 2:30pm

Integrating Mobile Automation with CI and CD

Add to calendar

More and more organizations are demanding a move from monthly release cycles to weekly. The good practices of continuous integration (CI) and continuous delivery (CD) allow us to deliver on this goal, but where do you start with these practices? Join Niranjani Manoharan as she discusses her experiences at Twitter, eBay, and now Pinterest and shows how the drive for automation can help you reach your CI/CD goal. She will share how her previous experience of mobile and platform testing and automation shaped the Pinterest approach to CI/CD, and how you can reuse what you already know to implement a meaningful CI/CD pipeline. Starting with how containers can simplify your build process, she will describe various solution approaches to addressing common issues while automating in the mobile platform, as well as explain the caveats of different CI systems. Finally, she will share lessons learned from the experience, so you can avoid the same pitfalls when implementing a CI/CD pipeline. Return to the office better prepared for your CI/CD transformation.
