May Developer Newsletter

Hi folks!

Here is the May 2022 Developer’s Newsletter: blogs, conferences and new releases of our libraries (Java, Node, .NET) and plugins (Magento 2, Salesforce B2B). 

Did you know?

We are regularly featured in the Java NL Magazine, a nice magazine for all NL-based Java developers.

Help us!

Our call to help continues! Some devs got in touch with us and we held a few nice insightful sessions. Have you worked with Adyen’s API Libraries? Are you willing to help us improve them? 

We ask for a 30-45 min call with a few questions about your experience, in return we offer a 50$ amazon gift card. Reach out to

E2E testing with Playwright and Docker: Adyen sample integrations
Playwright is a modern framework for designing and running E2E testing: one of our Developer Advocates wrote this blog to share the lesson learnt by implementing E2E testing of the Adyen Sample applications with Playwright, Docker and GithubActions.

Conference season is on
In-person events and conferences have finally restarted! We are joining and/or sponsoring to support the communities we work with and meet fellow developers and engineers.

We are a proud Platinum sponsor of the “PyConDE & PyData Berlin 2022” (Apr 11-12-13), a 3 days full immersion with the Python and PyData communities. A line-up of great speakers, including Andreu Mora (Adyen VP of data science and ML) talking about Unsupervised shallow learning for fraud detection on marketplaces

We joined TEQnation (May 12th), a great software development conference in Utrecht (NL) with our own booth and swag. Maurício Aniche (Adyen Tech Academy Lead) gave the talk “Can Machine Learning help software developers?” to discuss machine learning models that can improve code refactoring and, later on, signed the copies of his latest book.
