GTAC Highlights Part 1 - Selenium is Alive and Well, Model Based Testing Is Smart, And...

I just got back from the GTAC (Google Test Automation Conference) in New York and had a great time. It spanned 2 days and had a single track — this made it very laid back (no headaches trying to decide what talk to attend) and the timing was perfect. Especially since my traveling managed to dodge one of the worst summer storm systems to hit Chicago in at least a decade!.

I've put together some highlights using the notes I took at each talk. Please bear in mind that this is not a comprehensive report on the conference and may contain misinformation (feel free to comment with corrections). The Google folk did an impressive job of posting video of most talks online within hours. A youtube search for GTAC lists them all. Or ... you can watch them from a playlist

Allen Hutchison - First Principles

Patrick Copeland - Keynote

Simon Stewart - Web Driver for Java

Ryan Gerard and Ramya Venkataramu on Test Hygiene

Matt Heusser & Sean McMillan - Interaction Based Testing

Adam Porter & Atif Memon - Skoll DCQAS

Apple Chow & Santiago Etchebehere - Building an Automated Framework Around Selenium

Doug Sellers - CustomInk Domain Specific Language for automating an AJAX based application

Risto Kumplainin - Automated testing for F-Secure's Linux/UNIX Anti-Virus products

Jennifer Bevan & Jason Huggins - Extending Selenium With Grid Computing

That's all I have time for at the moment. Check back for Part 2 - coming soon!

    Thanks for the post/feedback :) A couple of comments:

    1. Santiago's last name is misspelled (correct spelling is Etchebehere)

    2. Ringo is used for internal systems, not Google Suggest. We are using some simple examples against other external applications to illustrate the concepts since we can't show examples for internal systems

    3. XML is the path we decided to go with, but it's not the only option. Users can implement our interfaces to provide their customized solutions if they don't like XML :)

    But thanks again for the post :)

    Thanks for the info, I made some corrections / clarifications. (Sorry that my lame blog is flakey, heh.)

  • Re: GTAC Highlights Part 1 - Selenium is Alive and Well, Model Based Testing Is Smart, And...

    You actually made a comment/summary for all the topics. Cool!

  • Re: GTAC Highlights Part 1 - Selenium is Alive and Well, Model Based Testing Is Smart, And...

    There are about four that I haven't commented on yet (maybe I'll touch on a few lightning talks too) ... those will be in part 2. There are also one or two that I didn't find very interesting so I didn't take many notes on them.

  • Re: GTAC Highlights Part 1 - Selenium is Alive and Well, Model Based Testing Is Smart, And...

    Great summary. I was going to write something similar, but I'll just link to yours instead.

    Thanks Allen, updated!

  • Re: GTAC Highlights Part 1 - Selenium is Alive and Well, Model Based Testing Is Smart, And...

    Thanks for sharing this info!! I just linked my blog to yours

  • Re: GTAC Highlights Part 1 - Selenium is Alive and Well, Model Based Testing Is Smart, And...

    Did somebody talk about this subject during the GTAC ?

  • Re: GTAC Highlights Part 1 - Selenium is Alive and Well, Model Based Testing Is Smart, And...

    Thierry: yes, I believe there was a talk on it but I can't find any info on it now. I think it was Atif's talk about http://www.cs.umd.edu/~atif/GUITARWeb/ that touched on using model-based approaches for testing GUI components but there could have been another talk too.

    For the upcoming conference this year, I see a talk scheduled specifically on model based testing by Atif Memon and Oluwaseun Akinmade.

    Drink one teaspoon of apple cider vinegar mixed with water a couple of times a day provides antibacterial properties, and improves digestion. Acne body tends to not recognize much. This is because people can often hide. A person has a hard time hiding acne that develops on the face, so the focus tends to be there. It can also be embarrassing and painful if. It can form on the neck, legs, back, shoulders and chest areas. In fact, you can get acne other than the palms or soles. Acne is not necessarily a serious health problem, but it can affect how a person feels about their body. It can lead to depression and it was also a cause for people to commit suicide. They may feel that there is simply no way for them to be socially accepted because of the degree of their acne problems. This is important to understand because too often we only think of acne as a physical concern, but it is also emotionally charged.

    I have just founded my own limited business and need car leases & van leasing because the workers require cars and vans. Financing the business took out all my personal funds & now I am in bad debt personally. Will my personal credit rating might influence the businesses credit score?
