We are at OSCON!

Posted by on July 25, 2011

Generosity of spirit is a core Etsy Engineering principle — as a team we expect each of us to speak in public, release open source software, lead classes, write posts here on Code As Craft and/or publish research papers.

In that spirit, we’re at OSCON in force this year:

Ephemeral Hadoop Clusters in the Cloud

Today, in just a few hours, Greg Fodor is covering the infrastructure our Data Wranglers team has built to support building data driven products on Elastic Map Reduce.

Put a Button on It: Removing Barriers to Going Fast

John Goulah, and Erik Kastner will be talking about the process, people, and tools that we use to power our continuous deployment culture, and open sourcing our deployment tool, Deployinator.

Building an A/B Testing Framework for Web Applications

Zhi-Da Zhong will be talking about our A/B framework we use to make data driven decisions, and power the ramp ups that support the “branching in code” aspect of how we work.

Come talk to us!

In addition to Greg, John, Erik, and Zhi-Da, we’ll have a few more engineers on the floor.

And please make sure to find and talk to Tatiana, who is THE person to find out more about what it’s like working at Etsy. (and also the best person to get you in the door)

Your AB testing framework is already opensourced and it’s on https://github.com/etsy/ab.

I look forward to the release of Deployinator!

Agree at Oscon Tatiana was completely approachable.

I learned about Etsy’s “code as craft” culture via her recruitment pointers.

My next step, submit application.
