Hi, I'm Denis Papathanasiou.

I've made prior presentations about NoSQL databases, and I've done a lot of work in high-volume data processing, e.g., stock exchange quote analysis. I've also experimented in automatic text processing: programmatic pdf file manipulation and extraction, as well as ebook (.epub format) file generation.
I don't believe in unit tests b/c they're time-consuming and misleading (a commit can pass all the unit tests and still fail the intended transaction); black box testing on the whole is preferable imho.
Tie between mercurial & git b/c they are free, actively-maintained, and distributed (i.e., they don't rely on a single core repository).
