Alessandro Mautone

WeTransfer - Android Engineer

I started coding around the age of 18 and immediately fell in love with it. Since I was always passionate about mobile (first with Nokia and theirs Symbian and then with Android), it was natural for me to continue on that path. I started working in a small agency in South Italy where I had the opportunity to work on a lot of projects, then decided to expand my horizons and moved to Amsterdam where I started to work at WeTransfer.

Particular signs: I love sports in general, I am a regular runner and since love everything that flies I am a proud paraglider!

Automating key workflows in your daily developer life!


In this talk, I want to guide the audience through the tools I implemented and the scripts I built over time in our CI system to automate common tasks like:
- Daily release deliveries to QA (releases run automatically only if there were any new commits since the last one)
- Automated Git(Hub) tags creation for each release
- Automated release notes included in the tags (for QA)
- Automated code formatting with standard rules automatically shared across all the members of a team

- How to have automated "feature resales"
- How to create those scripts in order to make them reusable across different projects.

I currently work with Bitrise, which means my example may include that tool (but the scripts are tool agnostic).

How to effectively create and review PRs

In this session I want to guide the audience in how to effectively create and review PRs. Creating them has a few tips like templates and ways of automating some tasks through GitHub.
The review part talks about how to approach a PR, how to dialog with the author keeping in mind empathy and the fact we are on the same team, and when to comment vs request changes vs approve.
