Something Automated at Something Tech

Software Development


About the conference

Spanning across 2 days, Something Tech shines the spotlight on QLD companies who are developing emerging technologies to shape how we see, consume, transact and live. We were thrilled to see our delivery partner, Codebots up onstage, sharing their vision for the future.

Founder and techie, Dr Eban Escott, spoke of his three big loves:

Embracing Jidoka

Loosely translating to "automation with a human touch", Jidoka is about ensuring quality is delivered to your organisation's standards. At WorkingMouse, we teach a codebot how to write specific requirements, meaning that at the next implementation of these requirements, they can be automated. This allows us to gain momentum that increases project output, while decreasing human input and costs.

Everything is a Model

Model-Driven Engineering (MDE), is an approach to software development that allows us to quickly build software tools that fit our client's process precisely. MDE is like a workbench that allows developers to easily fashion their own tools custom-tailored to their project requirements, enabling the gains that automation offers. MDE is what empowers us to achieve Jidoka and build DevOps pipeline tools.

DevOps will heal the world

Devops empowers teams to integrate changes continuously and deliver often. Small software changes flow from creation through functional test to deployment as in a pipeline, creating confidence to make changes and reducing fear and anticipation. We invest time saved to add tools that raise quality in security, code quality, and performance to the pipeline.
