Jason Thane, Software Developer and Co-Founder, General UI
Pairing means working in teams of two developers with one computer, two keyboards, and two mice. One driver, one navigator. I will talk about why it’s helpful and what we get out of it at General UI. Notably, you solve problems differently when talking about the problem as a pair rather than when just writing code in solo fashion.
About: Jason Thane is a software developer and co-founder of General UI, a Seattle-based developer community built on principles of communication and trust.

MetaAutomation: Quality Automation for Software that Matters
Do you do automation for software quality? I have and still do. Years ago, I realized: we’ve all been doing it somewhat wrong. So, I set out to reassess and re-define the big picture.
The result is MetaAutomation, a pattern language for vastly greater business value with quality measurements. It’s more than how NOT to do it wrong; it’s about how to create vastly better business value than is available with conventional patterns and practices.
This lightning talk gives a launching point to quality automation for software that matters.
About: Matt Griscom has 30 years’ experience creating software including innovative test automation, harnesses and frameworks. Two degrees in physics primed him to seek the big picture in any setting. This comprehensive vision and a love of solving difficult and important problems led him to create the MetaAutomation pattern language to enable more effective automated verifications for software quality measurement. Matt blogs on MetaAutomation and publishes books on that topic to lead the entire software quality process through a quantum leap in improved productivity, communication and business value.
