After sticking with good old python "unittest", I've recently become a big fan of nose. There's a lot less boilerplate, and the parallel execution is a big win.
How to find and recruit good engineers.
Hg rocks. I know git is basically the same thing, but the command syntax just seems so clunky compared to hg. I used to use p4, which is pretty good as non-distributed systems go (and their tech support is awesomely good).
My current position is Director of Engineering for Songza.com. My biggest challenge today is recruiting. Our engineering group is currently 3 people. We need to double that. Finding good people isn't easy.
