Red Hat, Director of Developer Experience

Edson Yanaga, Red Hat’s Director of Developer Experience, is a Java Champion and a Microsoft MVP. He is also a published author and a frequent speaker at international conferences, discussing Java, Kubernetes, Quarkus, Microservices, Cloud Computing, and DevOps.

Yanaga believes that everything we do, big or small, matters - and that we can all create a better world for people with better software. His life’s purpose is to deliver good software and to help developers worldwide in delivering better software faster and reliably. Today his job, his hobby, and his life’s purpose are the same thing: and he’s happy that he found his Ikigai. (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ikigai)

We break production all the time. To avoid it, we created automated tests. But when our test suite grows, the feedback loop suffers again. What if we could have immediate feedback pointing to the tests that we're breaking with every single and minor change in our code? Meet Continuous Testing. We had the joy of practicing Continous Testing in the Java world about ten years ago, but this joy has been lost for one reason or another. Yet, with Quarkus, the joy of Continuous Testing is back!
