Conference Talks

Decoupled Drupal in Jobiqo: a retrospective

In this session I presented learnings from the last 5 years building our product at jobiqo using decoupled Drupal. I highlight the learnings of transitioning from a monolith to a decoupled architecture, the challenges we faced and how we overcame them. I also talk about the benefits of decoupling and how it allowed us to scale our product and our team.

Visual regression testing

In this session I presented what visual regression testing is, including information on how it can be adapted to your use case and how it can be included in your day to day workflow as a developer and as a team. I have shown tools in action and how they can improve the quality of your work in terms of design, accessibility and usability amongst other benefits.

Angular Universal

In this talk I covered what is Universal rendering, what that means for the web today, the benefits / challenges and how that can be accomplished with Angular. With Angular 4.0 what was previously a community-only effort (Angular Universal) was moved to Angular core making the API cleaner, easier to use, and maintaining better compatibility with the rest of the framework. We discussed what the new API looks like and what are the best ways to start using it today. The talk will focus on version 4.x.
