Hi everyone,

I know it has been a while since our last Meetup but I hope everyone had a lovely Summer! Huge thanks to the SpringerNature who have offered to host our next meetup! Details of the schedule are just being finalised and will be placed up shortly.

18:15 - Arrive & Refreshments

19:00 -  Implementing Quality Gates with VSTS - Eduardo Ortega, MagenTys

People, processes and tools, all come together if one fails the others do too.Implementing quality gates, it's about all of them. During this session, we will analyse how to create a process where the development team members will be involved in moving new features across the different quality gates using Visual Studio Team Services working on a CI/CD pipeline.

19:40 - Shift Right , Lets show some love to Production - Prakriti Singh and Filmon Daniels, Springer Nature

We want to show you how and what we have started doing to include testing in production in our our day to day QA activities. Includes a bit of introduction , some tools , a couple of practices and hopefully a good discussion at the end
