Paola Rossaro is Co-Founder and CTO at Nouvola. She loves seeing data and distributed systems in action, working flawlessly. Her career has spanned leadership roles at Teachscape and Wind River where she was responsible for the teams ensuring distributed enterprise application testing and monitoring (i.e.: making sure everything works flawlessly). She loved it so much her PhD in Computer Engineering didn’t seem to take it far enough, so she continued post doc work at UC Berkeley in real time network performance. At Nouvola, she has turned all her background in performance into actual state of the art products. She is responsible for the technical development and operations management of all Nouvola performance solutions, and an advocate for scalable web applications of the future.
As DevOps-based methodologies are more broadly adopted, we'll increasingly move to a continuous testing model. Containerized environments and microservices make it easier to optimize your application by validating changes to the environment or system configuration, allowing you to deliver better products faster.
