Presented by the Software Association of Oregon's Developers Forum

In today's software development projects there are more tools and technology choices than ever before but few are seamlessly integrated. Although significant advances have occurred in the last 20 years, it remains a challenge to build an efficient, cost effective and integrated development tools stack that enables rapid development, testing, and release. Efficient use of a full spectrum of tools is crucial to any company for productive high quality development. The newest tools can make significant productivity gains possible when used effectively.

Panel members will demonstrate working tools they've integrated in their development environments, and offer practical advice for adoption, benefits, challenges and usage.

Code Health: Alex Kriegel, an Enterprise Architect for the State of Oregon
Continuous Integration: Tom Waterhouse, a software architect at Sabrix Inc
Developer Integration Testing: Andrew Wright, a Principal Engineer at Blackbox Republic

Series Sponsors: Cascade Technical Services, EthicsPoint, OpenMake Software
