Nick Cabatoff - Taming Vault’s Tests

Taming Vault’s Tests

Big software projects need big test suites. Vault’s test suite suffered from problems common to big test suites: it took too long to run, and some tests were unreliable but too valuable to throw out. This talk is a retrospective of how we improved it.

About Nick

Nick Cabatoff is a developer on the Vault team at HashiCorp. After over a decade spent designing and debugging distributed systems he’s now obsessed with the problem of how to better monitor and understand them. Nontechnical interests include history and language, and the kind of video games where you frequently pause for half an hour to think about what to do next.
