Koality Testing Platform for the Cloud

In this podcast, Koality co-founder and COO Jordan Potter demonstrates how the company's cloud software testing platform automatically parallelizes your test suite across available virtual machines, making tests up to 64x faster.
Koality is a seamless server-side application that sits between your startup’s repository and your engineers’ computers to improve code changes. You don’t have to change your workflow — but instead of pushing code to your repository, your patches will first go through Koality. The server will then run test suites before submitting to the repository. If there is something wrong with your code, you will receive a notification. Koality effectively ends broken builds and countless wasted hours."
