Cloud Foundry has successfully enabled developers and ops to streamline the workflow of building and deploying applications. But why stop there? Using Cloud Foundry’s open source tools alongside Pivotal’s agile methodologies, Designer Kimberly Eberz and Engineer Urvashi Reddy will share how designers and developers can do the same. The speakers will tell a success story of pairing while creating an application from concept to completion.
Cloud Foundry empowers users by abstracting the complexities of infrastructure and allowing them to focus on the product and the code. Working in an environment where innovation takes priority makes pairing between designers and developers possible. This collaborative approach solves the problems that come with “throwing design over the fence.” What follows is a shared understanding of user needs, technical constraints, and requirements.
Urvashi Reddy is a Software Engineer at Pivotal. She works on Cloud Foundry’s API team which is responsible for creating and maintaining Cloud Foundry's endpoints. Urvashi was a speaker at last year's CF Summit in Berlin where she gave a talk on the benefits of pairing designers and developers.
