Hi Lorenzo, not sure if you are interested in this, but I would love to hear more people speak about testing software.
In particular I am lately thinking a lot about testing of systems in a time that everyone want to build micro services.
We can write unit and integration tests to ensure that each service works, but what approaches do people take to ensure their system is working as a whole? How do you create tests that have to deal with potentially hundreds of separate services at once? Do people run automated tests for this or do they spend a lot on QA in a dedicated staging environment?

Ah, that is a very interesting topic indeed. I'll put it on the list.
