Lisbon Community Meetup #4


Welcome to the Agile Connect Community!

Here is the 4th Lisbon Community Meetup!

João Paulo Rodrigues

João Paulo Rodrigues is a Senior Consultant @ Microsoft since 2000, and an Associate of the Visual Studio ALM Rangers Team since 2013.

João has been assigned to several local big projects during his professional career:

  • Multi-Channel frameworks for several financial institutions.
  • Identity management solutions.
  • Services framework for the largest IPTV provider in Portugal.
  • … and so on.

Since his early days at Microsoft, João always tried to use the technology available to automate/register process/methods to achieve the highest quality outputs on the core mission critical business applications he was working on: first, by writing simple scripts to build and install solutions… later by using TFS as an integrated application lifecycle management solution.

Using João’s own words, he “spent most of his time ensuring that the software factory was running as expected”, performing code reviews, ensuring that automated tests were performed, automating as possible the deployment process… in short: “ensuring that the Continuous Integration process was a work in progress and evolving!”
