About this event


We would like to invite you to our last Lisbon Pipedrive Engineering Meetup for 2023!

In this event, we will have another episode on the ongoing quest that different companies have taken in order to achieve Engineering Excellence. Different companies follow different paths, there isn’t a single way to reach it, and no silver bullet.

In this episode, we will dive into the several aspects of software delivery including how to elevate the development experience of software teams, the creation of a culture of quality through software testing, and how to achieve top-notch service performance in ever-growing software companies.

We will be having three different talks, followed by a networking session, have some πŸ• and 🍺 while exchanging ideas and engaging with the community.


***Talks & Speakers:***

πŸ”ˆ **Talk 1** β€” **Redefining Pipedrive DX: From Local to Cloud Dev Environment in One Year**

* *Diogo Correia, Engineering Product Manager β€” Pipedrive*

* In one year, Pipedrive shifted from an inefficient local setup to a robust cloud-based development environment. Diogo will delve into the strategies deployed by our DevOps Tooling team to reduce waste, increase efficiency, and simplify the development process. Learn how we did it and what you can apply for your own teams.

πŸ”ˆ **Talk 2 β€” Testing strategies, tooling, and fear of the unknown**

* *Giovanna Faso, VP of Engineering Operations & Ibrahim Azzam, Staff Quality Engineer β€” Dashlane*

* As companies scale, they start becoming more formal about their testing practices. Some embark on a β€œTDD or go home” practice whilst others prefer to use softer tactics of incentivizing a culture of quality. Regardless of which way this goes, all respectable companies of a certain size need a Testing Strategy in place. When to test, how to test it, and with what repercussions, is the bare minimum strategy needed, but building consensus around one and making sure it is adopted is where most of your efforts will go. Giovanna and Ibrahim will share how Dashlane has done it, navigate us through some variations, and share our pitfalls and successes with you.

πŸ”ˆ **Talk 3 β€” PandaDoc’s Application Performance Journey: Elevating to higher standards**

* *Eduard Romanovskiy, Senior Engineering Manager β€” Pandadoc*

* The PandaDoc application has a rather complex UI logic, including online collaborative editing and thousands of scenarios. It is very easy to degrade the speed of some of these scenarios. Eduard will cover how PandaDoc improved the speed of the key scenarios threefold, what tools have been used for it, and the challenges we faced. In addition, he will share how we maintain such a level of performance and do not degrade during new contributions.
