Gil Tayar

Evangelist and Senior Architect

Applitools, Israel


From the olden days of DOS, to the contemporary world of Software Testing, Gil was, is, and always will be, a software developer. He has in the past co-founded WebCollage, survived the bubble collapse of 2000, and worked on various big cloudy projects at Wix.

His current passion is figuring out how to test software, a passion which he has turned into his main job as Evangelist and Senior Architect at Applitools. He has religiously tested all his software, from the early days as a junior software developer to the current days at Applitools, where he develops tests for software that tests software, which is almost one meta layer too many for him.


How to Manage Quality in Shift Left Environments

Developers are testing. This is a fact today. And it’s a good thing. Actually, it’s an amazing thing, as experience has shown that the closer the tests are to the code, the better they are. In this talk I will explain why shifting-left is a good strategy, I will discuss the best practices in frontend and backend development, including the types of tests that give value (unit, component, integration, e2e) in both frontend and backend development, and finally show how developer testing has affected the development and testing workflows in companies that have shifted left.
