StarCanada Conf by TechWell -- Logo

Later this week, Applitools’ Sr. Architect and Evangelist Gil Tayar will be joining software testing and quality assurance (QA) leaders and practitioners at the Hyatt Regency Toronto Hotel in Ontario, Canada for StarCanada 2018.

What is StarCanada? StarCanada (#StarCanada) is an annual software testing conference hosted by TechWell — the same folks that bring us StarEast, StarWest, and Agile Testing Days US — featuring the top minds in software testing sharing the latest trends, tips and tools on stage and through conference networking opportunities. This year’s conference is taking place in Toronto, Ontario from October 14 – October 19.

For the next few days, attendees will explore, share and learn about DevOps, security testing, agile testing, Big Data and more. Among the impressive lineup of speakers include representatives from IBM, Accenture, Dell EMC, and dozens more, as well as our own Gil Tayar — who is scheduled to present on Wednesday, October 17.

Gil Tayar, Sr. Architect and Evangelist @ Applitools

Gil Tayar, Senior Architect @ Applitools, will present his talk: “Docker and the Path to a Better Staging Environment“. Join him @ 11:30 a.m. as he explains what Docker is and how to quickly deploy an app that includes a front end, backend service, and database, and he’ll show how to run an end-to-end test on it. You’ll return to your office with the ability to help developers change their code so that it can be deployed using a Docker setup, and you’ll know how to execute the necessary changes to make the application deployable in such a setup.

Gil’s a fantastic speaker and longtime front-end developer (just how long he’d rather not say). His talks always contain plenty of technical depth and practical tips. You can see one of his past talks below:
