KEYNOTE: An Open Planet (Grand Peninsula DEFG)

Planet Labs is a new startup with a bold mission: To image the entire planet every day. In the last year alone, the company has built and launched 67 satellites, made possible with an "Agile Aerospace" approach.

The current operational constellation is successfully imaging the earth at a resolution of 3 to 5 meters. The goal is to create a much greater awareness of all that is happening on our planet. Key to this mission is greatly increasing the world's access to satellite imagery and the valuable information that can be derived from it.

Quality without QA

It's hard (and expensive) to hire good QA engineers. Atlassian went for many years before hiring our first QA, and today developers still outnumber them 25:1. The secret to scaling QA is to bake quality assurance into every step of the workflow and ensure developers analyze and test not just their own work, but each other's as well. Of course, developer time is a precious resource and developers can be a proud bunch so the trick is to ration it carefully - ideally not letting them realize they're doing QA at all.
