I'm a Computer Scientist with a Masters in Artificial Intelligence.
I started working as a QA Automation Engineer developing automation tests for different browsers, chatbots, pricing prediction for brokers and games, but my career has evolved to making tools for people who do these automation tests.
I am currently working as a Tools Engineer at King, since June 2020, mainly developing GOAT, a tool that handles automation tests and different device farms.
3 fun facts:
1. I’m a violinist and a singer. I used to be in the Catalan National Orchestra and I sing in several choirs.
2. I love games of all kinds. I enjoy a lot playing videogames, I have a full rack of board games and I’m the best at escape rooms.
3. I have two beautiful cats: Dominó and Gustavo. Domi loves cuddles on the floor, and Gus announces his presence as loud as he can.
Testing mobile apps on a large number of devices, with different screen sizes and running different Operating Systems is becoming a challenge. While developing, teams can easily run their code and test their apps on simulators or emulators. However, this is not enough when you need to ensure your app will run smoothly in all the different types of mobile devices your users carry with them in their pockets. In that case, you would better go for real physical models. Creating a cloud-based Mobile Automation Lab where engineers can launch their automated tests on a daily basis, through their CI pipelines and use real devices from a Device Farm cloud provider (such as SauceLabs) has proven to be key to ensure how games are tested at King.
With this scalable, cloud-based middleware we’ve built, we can distribute load, handle queues and run the different automated tests in our pool of devices from different Device Farms. This service oriented software provides an API endpoints web based service where end-users can automate their testing processes or even launch them whenever they want. Reports are sent back when tests have been run and alerts and notifications can be easily configured.
I’ve been to every single Develop in the last 12 years. One thing you get here is networking - you will meet the most amazing individuals in the video games industry.
I really like Develop, I really like the intimacy of it and I love the location.. there’s a good diversity of talks going on so there hasn’t been a time when there’s nothing I want to see.
Develop:Brighton’s a great conference. It’s got a spread of people from all parts of the games industry talking about such a wide range of topics.
Develop is an excellent way of catching up with people – there’s a really nice community feel here.

There’s something creative about Brighton, so it’s the perfect place to have the conference.
Develop is important – the networking is very important. And go to talks they’re inspiring and get your creative juices flowing, they can make you think and you’ll learn how other people do things.
I absolutely love coming to Develop, it’s a brilliant, brilliant conference – you just know you’re guaranteed to meet everyone.

There’s really something for everyone at Develop and the experience of being around like-minded people is really useful.
A lot of the opportunities that come from being here are speaking to other developers who are doing exactly the same thing as you. And there are some good parties – it’s very much a pleasurable work experience!
Develop is a very important place – it’s one of the few developer focussed conferences we have in Europe and that makes it very valuable.
There are many ways you can be part of Develop:Brighton - including taking a booth in the Expo or choosing one of the many sponsorship opporunities during the event or at the Star Awards.Contact us now!
