For unit testing, I use JUnit. I've used TestNG in the past, but these two frameworks have always been neck and neck regarding features. Some of the other testing frameworks/libraries that I love to use: - mockito - great for mocking out objects. Easy to use and understand. The readability of the mocks are great in my opinion. - selenium - great for browser testing, although can be overused in some cases. These tests can be slow and brittle. A balance needs to be meet regarding these types of tests as they tend to take a long time to run.
Project management and methodologies, hiring, technologies, implementing change, etc.
Not at this time.
I love to use git. I'm pretty sure I like it for the same reason as other git users: - I have the whole repository locally. I don't have to connect to a remote repository to interact with it. This attributes to it's speed and flexibility. - local checkins. - easy branching. - I can use it with our SVN repository without selling everyone else on the team of it's benefits. - etc, etc, etc
I've recently become a Director of Engineering from Tech Lead for pronto.com. This meetup has piqued my interested and I'd like to learn more.
