You've probably heard about Next Gen Apps, but do you really understand what that means? Doing Next Gen Apps RIGHT means that your code is "automation-ready": split into modular, easily-maintained pieces of code. Not only will you see immediate returns in lower testing times, fewer defects, better code-quality and higher ROI, but you can also much more easily expose your business functions to new user interfaces and APIs - all without being "locked in" to any specific product or framework.

This session will help you understand how to move your existing code base down the Next Gen path, on the way to becoming an Elite Performer in DevOps methodology.

Learning Objectives:
1. Learn what NextGen Apps actually are
2. Learn how to modularize your code
3. Learn how to expose business functions
4. Learn about testing automation
5. Learn about code quality
6. Learn how Next Gen fits into DevOps
7. Live demo showing actual process, tools and methodology
