Hi, I am Carmine Vassallo and I love accelerating software development processes using a scientific approach.
In the last years, I focused on easing the adoption of Continuous Integration (CI) within software development teams. We developed tools that speed up the resolution time of failures occurring on Jenkins servers. We also identified deviations from CI best practices (called anti-patterns) looking at GitLab configurations and build logs.
Currently, I am a senior DevOps engineer at Avaloq, part of NEC Corporation, in Zurich, Switzerland. We build our own software banking suite which is used by Barclays, HSBC, and other major banks worldwide. In my role, I take ownership of build tools and architect the next automation tasks, fostering a DevOps mindset.
I hold a PhD in computer science from the University of Zurich. I co-authored 14 articles on CI/CD topics published at top-tier peer-reviewed conferences and journals in the field of software engineering.
