Talk 1: Timing: 5 - 5:30 PM Web testing at Google - Infrastructure for the world's most demanding web developers - by Ted Mao, Google Inc. Abstract: Every day, Google's web testing infrastructure runs millions of Selenium, WebDriver, and JsUnit tests on a variety of browsers and operating systems. In this talk, I will present the infrastructure we've built at Google to support web testing, discuss how this infrastructure evolved as our web testing needs increased in scale and complexity, and give you a peek into some of our future plans. Speaker Bio: Ted Mao is a software engineer at Google. He has worked as a both a producer and consumer of web testing infrastructure for many years, and is currently building really-cool-stuff-he-can't-say-much-about at Google.
Talk 2: Timing : 5:30 - 6 PM Leveraging feedback and analysis to improve development process - by Brad Green, Google Inc. Abstract: One of Google's key strategies is in using machines to create services that scale far beyond what's been previously possible. Google Feedback attacks the problem of how we can materially support hundreds of millions of users and integrate their feedback without hiring thousands of support reps. RoundUp gives us ability to see focus area or Google-wide issues identified in outage postmortems and helps us manage required remedies. Join us for a demo of these two products and a discussion on how we're using their signals to change the way we do business. Speaker Bio: Brad Green manages test engineering in the Apps, Enterprise, and Emerald Sea focus areas and engineering for Google Feedback and Access Engineering. Prior to Google, Brad worked at a variety of Silicon Valley start-ups in roles of developer, founder, product manager, and eng manager. Brad does not wear shoes for various reasons that still sound crazy even after he explains them.
Talk 3: Timing: 6 - 6:30 PM Tools for Continuous Integration at Global Scale - by Nathan York, Google Inc. Abstract: Software engineers rarely invoke compilers and lower-level tools directly. Instead they interact with a build system which analyzes dependency information and then orchestrates the overall build process. Yet build systems are often overlooked by industry and academia. This presents a challenge for large organizations as their code base grows and engineering processes struggle to keep up. This talk covers the key insights and technical design elements that enable us to scale the word’s largest continuously integrated code base to thousands of engineers worldwide. Speaker Bio: Nathan refers to himself as “a tools guy”. He worked on IDEs and developer tools at Borland before joining Google 6 years ago. During this time he has been involved in transforming Google’s tools and development process to scale with Google's rapid growth. He strongly believes that great engineering tools and process are one of the key elements required for successful software engineering.
Talk 4: Timing: 6:30 - 7 PM Testing at Google - by Dr. James Whittaker, Google Inc. Speaker Bio Dr. Whittaker is currently the Engineering Director over engineering tools and testing for Google's Seattle and Kirkland offices. He holds a PhD in computer science from the University of Tennessee and is the author or coauthor of four acclaimed textbooks. How to Break Software, How to Break Software Security (with Hugh Thompson) and How to Break Web Software (with Mike Andrews). His latest is Exploratory Software Testing: Tips, Tricks, Tours and Techniques to Guide Test Design and he's authored over fifty peer-reviewed papers on software development and computer security. He holds patents on various inventions in software testing and defensive security applications and has attracted millions in funding, sponsorship, and license agreements while a professor at Florida Tech. He has also served as a testing and security consultant for dozens of companies and spent 3 years as an architect at Microsoft.
