Engineers’ Talk: DevOp and Tester Vassilis Rizopoulos
You remember episode 20 where I mentioned the Embedded Testing conference in Munich. One of the presentation was about Applying DevOps Principles to Software-Hardware Integration Test. Vassilis Rizopoulus explained details about DevOps, their tooling, automated testing and the mandatory environment.
I was excited and we have had an extraordinary talk after his contribution. Some days later I asked him for an interview. I am sure that Vassilis’ ideas and thoughts will be helpful for a lot of engineers out there. Especially engineers who wanted to try something knew, but who might need some trigger to change their way of thinking and habit.
Vassilis has been dabbling in software engineering close to two decades by now. In this time what started as a hobby of a would-be electrical engineer became full time occupation. He specializes in software productivity engineering, a catch all term for the role that integrates the development environment, test automation, continuous integration and deployment, devops and general behind the scenes tooling that enables software teams to concentrate on actually producing useful software.
