Up: Building test.check Generators: Gary Fredericks

  • Fredericks presenting very fun example of how Dropbox created massive randomized tests to ensure file/directory ops worked correctly
  • Fredericks: Dropbox test suite included huge test datasets of timestamps a couple ms from Jan 1970 (Unix epoch)
  • Fredericks showing amazingly awesome skills required to test boundary cases, generating fuzzing, etc to test code
  • Really enjoyed Fredericks desc amazingly awesome (sadistic?) skills used to test Dropbox: targeting boundary cases, fuzzing, etc
  • Fredericks: “let’s try 8 digit years”

Misc

  • @kyptin: @DTroyWest built a system that processes a sustained 5k-50k events per second with 1 other person, thanks to Clojure & JVM. #Clojure_conj

  • @StuartHalloway: “Indelibility: a database that remembers previous states” (values vs. identity)
  • @StuartHalloway: “how do we make Clojure a great language for QWS; and make Datomic an easy choice for Clojurists”
  • @StuartHalloway: “Last couple of years: service? minimal operational responsibility
  • @StuartHalloway: “new offering: Datomic Cloud on AWS Marketplace”
  • @StuartHalloway: “cheap: S3 access: 2 orders showers than EC2 SSD
  • @StuartHalloway: “Reading: SSD, EFS, S3, DynamoDB
