Hi Everyone:Here's what I would love to see at GTAC...1) A talk on Windmill's advantages over Selenium. Windmill looks great to me: http://www.getwindmill2) A talk on Cloud Testing. PushToTest TestMaker (my baby) now does fully automated testing using Amazon EC2, GoGrid, Rackspace and Collabnet Cubit (Lab Manager). TestMaker supports "lights out" testing in a cloud; TestMaker starts the test runners it needs in a Cloud by itself and turns off the test runner instances when the test is done. Cloud Testing gives testers the ability to stage large and small tests on demand, at user levels not achievable before, and from multiple geographic locations.3) Real world experiences building data driven tests of Rich Internet Applications (Ajax, Flex, Flash.) TestMaker has a powerful Data Production Library to turn Selenium, Windmill, soapUI, TestGen4Web tests into data driven tests. TestMaker, The Grinder, and JMeter provide distributed test runners. I'd like to talk about the challenges of providing operational test data to tests running in a distributed test environment.4) An open source answer to Greenhat for automating test authoring based on Business Process Management (BPM) definitions in Tibco Business Works, IBM Process Server, Oracle.5) How you go from a Transactions Per Second chart to root cause analysis and mitigation is the key to successful application performance management. Java enterprise applications and .NET applications come pre-wired with management tools and performance Aspects to provide a test platform with insight into thread deadlocks, database connection issues, memory leaks, and slowly performing objects without having to instrument the application. Drill-down testing is the next generation and gets us closer to application performance management.I'm glad Google is showing leadership with the GTAC. I hope to be invited.-Frank Cohenhttp://www.pushtotest.com
Hello We would also want a talk on the automated approach for doing browser compatibility testing.
Hy Folks,It would be great to see Selenium in full effect. Today I work with common tools like QTP and I like to see the difference to open source tools like Selenium.
When will we be able to apply to attend? I'm tempted to write an automated test to continuously check the page and fill out the application for me once it is available.
What is the profile of a GTAC attendee? Testers, consultants, tech leads from automation service providers or software companies? Execs from these companies?
How about teleconferencing this event at some of the Google headquarters around the world. I'd love to participate but I'm not sure I can make it to Switzerland. A video link between Zurich and Toronto would be very cool, event if the time difference is ugly.
