Reading Time: 1 minute

 

Software release expert will present a keynote session at PICANTE TECH Conference Europe 2019.

 

If you search online, you will find that continuous integration, continuous deployment, and continuous delivery are like vectors that have the same direction, but different magnitude. Their goal is the same: make our software development and release process faster and more robust.

The key difference between the three is in the scope of automation applied. What gets people who are new to the field confused is that they are not mutually exclusive, but include each other, like Russian dolls.

At PICANTE TECH Conference Europe (TCE2019), which will take place in Prague on the 3rd of September at Vienna House Andel’s Prague, you can hear more about the subject in a special keynote which will be presented by Matt Beaney, Service Transition at AutoTrader UK.

The future is almost here and there are more and more talks about AI being a key part of our daily life. But, it seems we are not quite there yet as most of the services that are available are not the real independent AI which is feared by many doomsday preachers.

At PICANTE TECH Conference Europe (TCE2019), which will take place in Prague on the 3rd of September at Vienna House Andel’s Prague, we have put together an artificial intelligence-related panel discussion which will highlight some of the most recent topics that are discussed in the sphere and can benefit many in the upcoming period.

The panel discussion will be joined by Andjela Todorovic (Software Engineering Intern at Cubic Corporation), Jiří Třečák (CEO at Supernova), Aleksander Kijek (Chief Product Officer at Nethone) and last but not least, Vojtech Chloupek (Partner at Bird & Bird).

The futuristic thinking panel discussion will be moderated by Dr. Robert Skalina, Senior Advisor at WH Partners.
