In the fast-paced world of software development, it’s important to stop our daily coding processes (just for a while!), clear our minds, and take a deep-dive into more advanced engineering topics and challenges — in areas such as microservices, scale, deployment and monitoring.

So let’s do just that! Join Avi Mualem and Oded Apel in this new 3-part YouTube show, as they share professional insights and take you into their own experiences and lessons learned from many years of experimenting, learning and practice.

In Part 1, “Software Design & APIs First”, Avi and Oded talk about the right way of implementing an “API first” approach in your organization and the challenges it presents. Watch:

At Wix, we love tests. All types and kinds, but most of all, E2E tests (End-to-End).

A good E2E test will allow you to verify that your system is working as expected, having no problems with integrations or communication with all of its subsystems, no deployment issues, and most importantly, no regression mess.

The problem is that creating a suitable testing environment that would represent a “live” and ever-changing production code as accurately as possible is hard, very hard.

Watch this talk by Nissan Gabay to learn how we handled this challenge by creating a framework that runs millions of tests daily in the production environment as part of our CI build flow.

At Wix, we have more than 700 FED developers, with many new projects coming in every month.

However, with every new project and every joining developer — boilerplate numbers are going up while our dev velocity is going down.

So, how do you scale, reduce boilerplate and supply tools that make the developers’ work much more efficient? This is where the FED infra team comes into play. In this talk, Yaniv Efraim is introducing Yoshi.

Yoshi is the tool we developed at Infra FED that makes the developers’ life much, much, easier — from generating new projects, to building the code, running tests, and more. Wacth:

Platform Engineering is the discipline of designing and building toolchains and workflows that enable self-service capabilities for software engineering organizations in the cloud-native era.

Platform engineers provide an integrated product most often referred to as an “Internal Developer Platform” covering the operational necessities of the entire lifecycle of an application.” — Luca Galante, @luca_cloud

As more and more tech companies are starting to do their first Platform Engineering steps — our 3rd Twitter Spaces event, led by @AlexPinsky Director, Head of Platform Engineering, @Asafy3, Head of Frontend Engineering and @eitanpo, DevEx CTO, will discuss and get deeper into the world of Platform Engineering — the principles, the challenges, the benefits and how to get started.
