Advanced Testing with Go

A session at Advanced Testing with Go

Tuesday 15th March, 2016

7:00pm to 9:00pm (CET)

It's time for another NewStore tech talk!

This evening tech star Mitchell Hashimoto will talk about Advanced Testing with Go. Reserve your seat asap & RSVP for other upcoming NewStore tech talks!

Distributed systems, multi-process RPC, platform-specific code, side-effect dependent behavior, highly security-sensitive, millions of users, users that measure downtime per second in millions of US dollars, and more. These are the properties of the Go code that HashiCorp must ship. To ensure quality for this code, we've learned to test everything multiple times. Despite the requirements, we've "backported" these test practices to our other projects with more relaxed requirements as well since we saw such a hue benefit. In this talk, I describe the methods HashiCorp uses to test software, the pros/cons, and how you can adopt it yourself.
