In the third episode of our podcast, Mobile DevOps is a thing!, we talk to John Sundell. Join us as we discuss how mobile teams can level up their skills and benefit from test automation and continuous delivery. John Sundell is a well-known authority on Swift development. He's the author of the popular swiftbysundell.com website, hosts his own podcast, produces video, and is a regular speaker at conferences around the world. All with the aim of supporting and contributing to the iOS developer community. John recently added consultancy services to his busy schedule and has been supporting mobile development teams with exciting challenges since. A recurring theme of these engagements is knowledge transfer, in the form of training, code reviews, workshops, and help with adopting automation in different phases of the development process. During this episode, we'll dive into some of the technical details, John's unique approach to consultancy services, and we'll discover why he's not a fan of telling people what to do.
