Topic 1 - Welcome to the show. Tell us a little bit about your background, and what brought you to create AtomicJar
Topic 2 - Let’s start at the beginning. We hear more and more about shifting everything left. In this case we are talking about potentially shifting testing left. What problem are we trying to solve and everything comes at a cost, what are the tradeoffs?
Topic 3 - We hear all the time that adoption of changes to a development practice is part culture and part technology. What is the hook that gets folks interested in investing time and resources into better testing practices?
Topic 4 - Are the tests integrated into the code? How seamless is this into existing CI/CD pipelines or an organization's DevOps practice on average?
Topic 5 - From a business perspective, how are the advantages typically measured? More deployments, less defects, etc
Topic 6 - Let’s talk about the OSS project Testcontainers a bit. What is it? How did it come about? How are folks using this concept of throwaway, lightweight instances of databases, message brokers, and web browsers, for instance. Is this all in Docker containers?
Topic 7 - There’s also testing in the cloud with a SaaS service (Testcontiners Cloud). What is the origin story behind this and how are folks using it today? Is this a replacement for say Docker Desktop?
Topic 8 - For those out there that are interested? How would they get started?
