Hey, where is my country? Make all your end users happy
What looks like a simple choice in a drop-down list, can turn into a PR nightmare. Integrating an external mapping service can unintentionally make many of your users unhappy. How can software developers and startups manage location-based services in disputed territories or partially recognized state? How can you make all your users happy? A few tips and tricks for the developer who targets an international audience but wants to rely on location data to control new features.
For the very first time next October I will attend and speak at a testing conference and it will be the biggest software testing conference in Europe, TestCon Europe 2020. I will cover one of my favorite topics, geolocation and geopolitical challenges in the software world: “Hey, Where is My Country? How to Test Your App and Website for Geolocation and Geopolitical Challenges”.
The abstract is below, more on the topic on saorico.com. Looking forward to be back to Vilnius!

Many airlines were forced recently to change the name of Taiwan on their booking systems. Hotel chain website where banned in mainland China for labeling Tibet as an independent country. Ukrainian users were upset because Crimea was removed from the map of their land. “What is the capital of Israel?” is a question that has triggered different answers from voice virtual assistants. We will go on a virtual tour around the world to see how disputed territories or partially recognized states are handled by online services and discuss how we can test and spot unintended geopolitical issues in our products.

Still thinking that this was my last AWS exam, but very happy to have passed the AWS Certified Database – Specialty Beta Exam in January and be one of the first ones to hold the new certification.
