Testing presentation on Tuesday (November 3)

Posted by Patrice Neff Sun, 01 Nov 2009

This Tuesday, November 3, I’ll give a presentation about testing at the Internet Briefing in Zürich. The talk will be in German. If you are interested, inscribe yourself on the Internet Briefing site.

The content of the presentation will be based on my current Setting up a full stack for web testing series.

A/B Testing presentation

Posted by Patrice Neff Sun, 01 Feb 2009

I spent the day at StartupCamp in Basel yesterday. I thoroughly enjoyed the conference and would love to see it happen again.

This being a BarCamp I did a presentation as well. Mine was about A/B testing or multivariate testing. It’s not exactly the same thing but I tend to lump them together.

I collected all the background material on delicious with the abtest tag.

You can download the presentation (PDF, 2MB). There were some more nice pictures in my live presentation but I stripped them for online consumption for copyright reasons.

Is your RDBMS letting you down?

Saw an interesting presentation on Google Video about data mining in the TV world at Rentrak.

They talk about how they mine lots of data and get real-time reports from them. Basically it comes down to using a patched/extended PostgreSQL plus a simplified query language that they convert to SQL.

In that context it might be interesting to check out Bizgres, though it was not mentioned in the presentation. The Bizgres web site says:
bq. The Bizgres Project aims to make PostgreSQL the world’s most robust open source database for Business Intelligence.

Am Tweakfest werde ich am Freitag einen kleinen Ajax-Workshop halten.

Es geht darum eine kurze Einführung in Ajax mit einem praktischen Beispiel zu zeigen.

Vor meinem Vortrag stellt Marcel Vogt Apollo vor.

Melde dich bei mir, falls du gerne kostenlos zum Workshop kommen willst. Generell kostet die Teilnahme.

Testing with Selenium

Posted by Patrice Neff Sat, 02 Sep 2006

I spent Friday and Saturday at the T.Camp of the Swiss Web consultancy namics. That’s a yearly conference for the namics techies. As a member of the namics sister company local.ch I was also allowed to participate. And like every year for the past five years I held a presentation again. This time I talked about testing. Specifically Selenium.

It’s much the same as I’ll talk about on September 12 at the Webtuesday event.

You can download the presentation.
