Panic Driven Development

A presentation at Devopsdays London 2019 in in London, UK by Carolina Gilabert

We often think of our automated testing and build pipelines as something important to our stakeholders, to assert the stability of our system. Some developers think of testing as a chore, or something that slows you down.

This short talk is a story from earlier in my career, a cautionary tale even. I then make the argument that quality gates and automated processes can be invaluable for junior engineers, as they provide the freedom to contribute without fear.
