Distributed Systems: Test S-M-R-T not HARD
It’s 2018 and we still rely on integrated environments and large end-to-end test suites to release complex ecosystems, also called “software". In this talk, Matt breaks down the arguments for such nonsense and provides a better, faster, safer alternative. *Bio* Matt Fellows is a Principal Consultant at DiUS and a self-described polyglot who enjoys working at the intersection of technology, humans and ideas – ideally fully caffeinated – and has been doing so at startups through to enterprises since Y2K was a thing. He’s passionate about giving back to the tech community, sharing learnings at local meetups and conferences, and is a core contributor to the popular Pact microservices testing framework and author of the Muxy chaos testing tool. When not absorbing the Internet via osmosis, he can be found teaching kids at Code Club, playing basketball or pumping iron like Arnie.

What we're about

At the San Francisco JUG you get to meet other local Java professionals and talk about code, architecture, innovation, opportunities, and share ideas about real-world problems.

Our meetings are technically focused and often include expert speakers on Java-related topics.

We welcome both beginners and gurus, both developers and managers, both geeks and professionals.

We typically meet on the 2nd Tuesday of each month and our meetings are FREE and OPEN to the public.
