Plus log white Plus log red log it > Small twitter Bill Venners on

In this talk, Bill Venners talks about  ScalaTest 2.0, and how it is a vast enough forest that it is hard to see all the useful trees. Bill will guide you through ScalaTest 2.0 by pointing out lesser-known features of the testing toolkit that can help you get stuff done. You'll gain insight into what ScalaTest offers, why ScalaTest is designed the way it is, and how you can get more out of it. This talk was recorded at the Scala Bay meetup at Box.


This talk is a continuation (Part II) of the "Hidden Gems in ScalaTest 2.0" keynote Bill gave at the ScalaExchange conference in London last week. He will show different "gems" in this video than he showed in London. Bill Venners  is president of Artima, Inc., publisher of Scala books, and co-founder of Escalate Software, LLC, provider of Scala training and consulting. He is the lead developer and designer of ScalaTest, an open source testing tool for Scala and Java developers, and coauthor with Martin Odersky and Lex Spoon of the book, Programming in Scala.

Introduction to Sensu

Small 8691510964 5971ea04ef z Bethany Erskine on

In this talk, Bethany Erskine, Devops Engineer from Paperless Post, presents an in-depth look into why Paperless Post chose Sensu, and how they monitor their services and collect system metrics to send to Graphite. Subtopics will include how we planned for and executed the migration, mistakes they made along the way, how they knew when to scale and how they did scale. Bethany also covers how Paperless Post is making their Sensu setup redundant and highly available, and how they're monitoring and collecting metrics about Sensu and integrating their internal tools with it. This talk was recorded at the NYC Devops meetup at Meetup HQ.
