This week we chat with Angie Jones, Java champion, prolific inventor, and senior director of developer relations at Applitools.
This week we chat with Angie Jones, Java champion, prolific inventor, and senior director of developer relations at Applitools. She previously held roles at Twitter and IBM. She explains why visual testing can catch things you would miss if you just scan the DOM, what actually makes a 10x developer, and how she secured a patent on a time machine for virtual worlds.
You can find Angie’s blog here, catch her on Twitter here, and connect with her on LinkedIn here.
You can check out Applitools and learn about the visual AI system it uses for testing here.

A lot of ego tripping. I lost my patience on waiting on the time machine talk.
Can a time machine patent ever expire?
Yes, it can. That’s why on their first travel the time travellers often go to the future to buy a patent with a further away expiration date.
I don’t have to listen to the podcast to know there’s a lot of ego tripping. The title gives it away – a Silicon Valley manager holding a “patent on a time machine”. Lol.
