At this event there will be the opportunity to mingle and network with the 2019 Queensland iAwards entrants and to learn more about their digital innovations during the Innovation Showcase.
Eban Escott, CEO, Codebots
Eban has over 20 years work experience as an information technology professional ranging from startups to large businesses. He is a strong believer in applying an agile methodology to assist businesses with product and traction development. Dr. Escott received his Ph.D. from The University of Queensland in 2013. His thesis, 'A model-driven approach to developing and testing web applications', was the result of his passion for improving software engineering processes. This research underpins the Codebots platform. He now holds an adjunct position and sits on the Queensland AI board. He is a thought leader in the area of Model-Driven Engineering and believes that software engineering can be significantly improved by bots and humans working alongside each other in the software engineering process.
Codebots are software robots that write code alongside your team. They write on average over 90% of an applications codebase. Through a process of continuous modernisation, we help enterprises migrate from their legacy systems and find a successful software/people fit. A codebot is able to migrate an offline database to a full stack application with API documentation (a process which might usually take weeks if not months) in an onboarding process.
The presentation will highlight how Codebots grew from a PhD thesis to a commercially viable, international business over the past few years.
