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!
looks like a simple choice in a drop down list, it can turn into a
nightmare. Integrating an external mapping service can unintentionally
make many of your users unhappy. How can we test websites and apps in
disputed territories or partially recognized state?
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.
Today I was back for “Devs Lunch Box” at Codemotion, talking about one of my favorite topics in the database world. You can find the recording of my short presentation “What is a serverless database?”here. The slides are available too.
A few devops conferences still go ahead, fully remotely, and it was a pleasure yesterday to be part of DevOps Pro Europe. Here are the slides and the video of my talk “Serverless Databases: The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly”.
How to run MySQL on AWS – the recording of my short talk for Codemotion “Devs Lunch Box” is now available on the Codemotion platform. In about 10 minutes, I covered the main ways to deploy a MySQL (or a PostgreSQL) database on the largest cloud provider.
Two years after my first conference in Poland, next May I will be in Poznań to talk about relational databases on the cloud at devopsdays. “Serverless databases: the good, the bad, and the ugly” will be the topic of my talk.
Interesting Berlin AWS Group Meetup at EMnify last night: I learned a lot about CI/CD on AWS, figured out that AWS IoT might be already behind the elevators I use every day and I had the chance to talk about Amazon RDS Proxy. Thanks Arndt for organising the event and for the picture!
