GTAC 2011: Opening Keynote Address - Test is Dead - YouTube

Opening Keynote: Test is Dead

Presented by Alberto Savoia


The way most software is designed, developed, and launched has changed dramatically over the last decade -- but what about testing? Alberto Savoia believes that software testing as we knew it is dead -- or at least moribund -- in which case we should stick a fork in it and proactively take it out of its misery for good. In this opening keynote of biblical scope, Alberto will cast stones at the old test-mentality and will try his darnedest to agitate you and convince you that these days most testers should follow a new test-mentality, one which includes shifting their focus and priority from "Are we building it right?" to "Are we building the right it?" The subtitle of this year's GTAC is "cloudy with a chance of tests," and if anyone can gather the clouds into a hurricane, it's Alberto -- it might be wise to bring your umbrella.

Alberto Savoia is Director of Engineering and Innovation Agitator at Google. In addition to leading several major product development efforts (including the launch of Google AdWords), Alberto has been a lifelong believer, champion, innovator and entrepreneur in the area of developer testing and test automation tools. He is a frequent keynote speaker and the author of many articles on testing, including the classic booklet "The Way of Testivus" and "Beautiful Tests" in O'Reilly's Beautiful Code. His work in software development tools has won him several awards including the 2005 Wall Street Journal Technical Innovator Award, InfoWorld's Technology of the Year award, and no fewer than four Software Development Magazine Jolt Awards.

JSMpeg – Decode it like it's 1999
What's the alternative?

HTTP Live Streaming (HLS) or MPEG-DASH add at least 5 seconds of latency.
WebRTC is not supported on iOS.
Not all browsers can decode H264; not all browsers can decode VP8.
WebRTC is tremendously complex. Try setting up a WebRTC broadcast server and you'll find yourself in a mess of STUN, TURN, signaling and media servers while trying to setup and compile a whooping 4GB git repository with custom tooling just to end up with what is essentially a black box that you can't possibly understand within your lifetime (well, I can't).
With JSMpeg you get:

A video and audio format that works in all modern browsers.
No licensing fees. All MPEG1 and MP2 patents have expired.
Very tight control over the Audio and Video decoders to implement your ideas.
Very low latency realtime streaming with high framerates and acceptable quality and bitrates.
A stack that you can understand from top to bottom.
Should you use JSMpeg for everything? Certainly not. If you just want to have a static video on your page, go with Youtube or encode it as WebM & MP4 and host it yourself.

If you need tight control over playback, realtime streaming or if you're just curious about Video & Audio codecs, JavaScript or WebGL, consider JSMpeg.

About Freeseer — Freeseer 3.0.0 documentation
Freeseer (pronounced free-see-ar) is a free, open source, cross-platform application that captures or streams your desktop. It’s designed for capturing presentations, and has been succesfully used at many open source conferences to record hundreds of talks (which can be seen at Though designed for capturing presentations, it can also be used to capture demos, training materials, lectures, and other videos.

Freeseer is written in Python, uses Qt4 for its GUI, and Gstreamer for video/audio processing. Freeseer is based on open standards and supports royalty free audio and video codecs.

Freeseer can be used by everyone but is aimed at organizations and personalities who are actively involved in conferences or events and have to record many presentations and talks in a short period of time.

Freeseer will be most useful for:

Presenters who want to record their own talks using a simple application that has virtually no learning curve, and covers all their basic needs.

Conference Staff who want easier ways to manage the recording of talks, and record talks with top audio and video quality.

Instructors like professors, bloggers, or consultants who want an easy way to record their lectures, tutorials, or training material to later share with others.

The High Visibility Project
We're curious about women in technology. We keep hearing they're not there, or they're hard to find there, or they’re being discouraged from getting there. In all the discussion about it, however, sometimes something seems to be missing – what individual women have to say about it. So we started a video campaign to find out.

Video – Students Building Legacy with Wikipedia | November Learning
I would like to share a video that was developed by Pat Kyle, a teacher in the Washington D.C. Public School System who worked with a group of students on the early stages of a project called Stories from Shaw. These students, with the help of Pat, a local public librarian and others within the community, are working to build up a written history of places in their community for inclusion within Wikipedia. Their first piece, still in progress, was written about Shiloh Baptist Church.
