Gareth Waterhouse, Lead QA Engineer at ASOS, who will be giving a talk “AA: Automating the Architecture”. Working for ASOS for 8+ years, Gareth has been working across multiple platform teams and seen the growth and the challenges that has posed. Gareth’s talk is about some of the challenges that ASOS has experienced in deploying and testing their platform. It will look at the architecture that sits behind, the challenges that poses, and the journey they went on as they used automation to help tackle this. It will talk about Azure, Load Balancers, Akamai, APIs, Automated Tests, TeamCity & Octopus, CI…. No matter how big the problem(s), by breaking them down having a clear vision and tackling them in isolation, it will help you achieve success.
