Techie and data junkie, just switched from a web development company to a leadership role in an early stage devops solutions one :)
Cloud environments, big data, devops angst
Mmmm.. data collection techniques for useful analytics later on, maybe. It's amazing how many developers throw away their best data because they never think about what they questions they might want to answer.
Personally I think unit tests are a bit overrated, so I really don't have a particular "favorite" per say. Just last month we found a bug in our code base that no one had noticed before because the unit tests always passed. I've been able to kick up huge vulnerabilities just by running inputs that the unit tests never considered. So while in general unit testing == good, I don't like such a heavy reliance on them.
Git :) Because SVN is the work of the devil.
