// Automation GitHub Services. If Something — Anything!
As any other company, Wix started out small. One development team, one product, one code repository. As Wix started to grow with more development teams, GitHub seemed to be a right fit for us, as our version control service. Soon after, new problems started to arise and everything went out of order. To properly manage the chaos, new rules were formed, but it was not enough. Human factors errors remained to be an issue and the biggest source of security risks — this is where the story of Automation GitHub Services begins.
Efrat Attas is an Automation team leader at Wix Engineering, and has been a software engineer for the past 15 years. She sees software as a powerful tool, with which we can improve many of our ongoing activities and believes programing to be a gateway to our creativity and inner artist.
Roi Ashkenazi is Head of Automation at Wix Engineering, and has been a software engineer for the past 10 years. He is addicted to software development and enjoys deleting lines of code in his spare time.
// SDLC automation in practice
The talk will cover different aspects of SDLC automation. As examples, we will see how some techniques can make the lives of developers and QA engineers much easier, as well as simplify the entire development process… Also, we hope it will convince you that developing internal tools has the same fun as features for external customers :)
