Zivtech is proud to have sponsored DrupalCamp NJ 2019. This year, our CEO, Alex Urevick- Ackelsberg, and our CTO, Jody Hamilton, both led speaking sessions. 

Alex’s session, Shift Left Testing for Continuous Collaboration, focused on “the process of moving the testing phase left of its usual position in the delivery pipeline so that it occurs as close as possible to the build process.”

When software development teams decide to test earlier and more often, it allows them to easily identify bugs and fix them sooner. This method of testing often creates a more efficient workflow and results in the delivery of higher quality products. 

In his session, Alex also discussed the software delivery approach known as Continuous Collaboration. Continuous Collaboration occurs when technical and non-technical departments work together toward a common end goal. This approach aims to reduce the silos inherent in software development.

Jody’s session, Semantic Site Building, posed the question, how can developers make a great CMS that editors find both intuitive and easy to maintain? 

Jody asserts that “the usability and maintainability of a CMS is closely related to the semantic sense of the architecture.” Her session went into detail about the basic definitions in the Drupal vocabulary and explains how to follow these definitions to design an intuitive structure.

DrupalCamp NJ allows Drupal professionals to come together for three days of events, including training courses, sessions, mentorships, and collaborations, all on the Princeton University Campus. 

It’s a great opportunity to share, learn, and engage with the Drupal community. We can’t wait until next year!
