SESSION + Live Q&A

Automated Test Design and Bug Fixing @Facebook

The talk describes the deployment of Sapienz, a system for automated test case design that uses Search Based Software Engineering (SBSE) that has been deployed at Facebook since October 2017 to design test cases, localise and triage crashes to developers and monitor their fixes. It also describes SapFix, a system for automated fix design and deployment.  Facebook continues to build on the Sapienz infrastructure, extending it to provide other software engineering services and we hope this will yield sustained interest in SBSE and hybridisation of it as a result. Finally, the talk also outlines some open problems and challenges, based on our experience of deploying Sapienz at Facebook scale.

SESSION + Live Q&A Protocols

Using Randomized Communication for Robust, Scalable Systems

Three key needs that any distributed system must address are discovery, fault detection, and load balancing among its components. Satisfying these needs in a robust and scalable manner is challenging, but it turns out randomized communication can help with each of them. In this talk, we will...

SESSION + Live Q&A Database Architecture

Automatic Clustering At Snowflake

For partitioned tables, maintaining good clustering properties for frequently filtered dimensions is critical for partition pruning and query performance. Naive methods of maintaining good clustering is usually expensive, especially when the clustering dimensions are different from the natural...

SESSION + Live Q&A Clojure

Functional Composition

Marc Andreessen famously observed that "software is eating the world". As an increasing proportion of our culture becomes codified (literally), we need to consider how to authentically express theory and insights from diverse fields in our software. This must account for domains besides business...

SESSION + Live Q&A Quantum Computing

Using Quantum Computers to Simulate Chemistry

Quantum computing is unmistakably becoming a thing. With IBM’s announcement of their quantum computing cloud service at CES in January and Google’s announcement last year of their 72-qubit Bristlecone processor, suddenly quantum computing seems to be entering into the Enterprise. In this...
