For the past 3 years I’ve been managing the Testing + Verification org at Facebook London, a group of teams that build bug finding tools, focusing on test infrastructure, dynamic analysis, automated test generation, type systems and static analysis.
Now, I’m switching track to a software engineering role at Facebook, in the same organization. I’m interested in bug prevention strategies when you have a very large scale, highly automated CI system. Given all the great tools we have to find bugs, how do you best integrate them into development processes, particularly when there are thousands of engineers in the loop.
And, in case you’re wondering, I’ll be hacking in some mix of Rust, Hack, maybe a bit of Haskell or OCaml, probably some Python in the mix, and some ML + data viz/data analysis.
One thought on “Writing code again…”
Hi Don, good to see you writing again! As someone at “about that stage” of my career, I’d be really curious what your experience of engineering management was like and what prompted your return to IC work. Best regards, Tom Ellis
