Press Release

Sonar to Present at WeAreDevelopers World Congress

Olivier Gaudin, CEO & co-founder, to deliver main stage talk about Clean as You Code at world’s largest developer event.

GENEVA — July 20, 2023 — Sonar, the leading Clean Code solution provider, today announced that it is a featured partner of the 2023 WeAreDevelopers World Congress in Berlin, Germany, from July 27-28, 2023. Sonar CEO and co-founder, Olivier Gaudin, will deliver a main stage talk that addresses: (1) the increasing need for clean code due to emerging trends and technologies like generative AI, (2) Sonar’s Clean as You Code methodology, and (3) the progressive reduction of technical debt. Additional Sonar sessions to be held at the event will be given by Developer Advocate Phil Nash, and members of the Vulnerability Research team Paul Gerste and Thomas Chauchefoin.

Olivier’s talk will lay out his vision for Clean as You Code  — an approach that follows set standards to keeping new, added, or edited code clean. It will also cover how the approach empowers developers to deliver high-quality, secure code that ensures software remains an asset, giving organizations a sustainable edge in today's marketplace. Following the Clean as You Code methodology for ensuring code is clean, particularly as the adoption of AI tools to speed code development increases, is mission-critical to business success.
