Mik Quinlan, Distinguished Architect will talk about BDD testing at Shopzilla.
Behaviour Driven Development and Shopzilla's Inventory Management Platform
For the last 14 months, Shopzilla has been re-platforming their Inventory systems to a service based architecture. During this time, Behaviour Driven Development (BDD) was trialled and eventually became the de facto testing approach. This talk will focus on how we used BDD to not only test individual services, but also the pipeline.

Mark Phillips (@pharkmillups) is the Director of Community and
Technical Evangelism at Basho, the company that leads development on
software like Riak. Mark is passionate about open source software,
community building, and Hall & Oates. He's also dedicated to bringing
scalable, distributed systems to the masses
Riak and Embracing Distributed Systems
Riak is an open source, scalable, highly-available database. Put
another away, it's a platform for building distributed systems. Riak
favors availability and operational simplicity above all else. Because
of this, some of the world's largest companies are relying on Riak to
build resilient applications.
This talk will cover the approach Riak takes to helping developers and
ops professionals build distributed systems. We'll start with an
architectural overview, then work our way through way Riak's
strengths. Lastly, we'll close with a focus on long-running
production deployments and applicability to real-world scenarios.
