Learn how to test your web apps with TestSwarm, Selenium, and qUnit! In this presentation Kevin Nilson, co-author of "Web 2.0 Fundamentals", shows you how to take your web testing to the next generation with slides, demos and code examples.
IMHO one of the most important presentations during Google I/O.

Today I was testing new feature available in chrome which is speech recognition using proposed "speech" attribute (x-webkit-speech in Chrome). I was wondering if it is practical to speak into a input box as a way to write a blog post. Why you would want to write this way? Well, a lot of writers record audio of the things they want to convey and the use transcription services. But it cost money to do that and best tools and services are available in English only. Google Speech recognition works quite well in most languages.
Coderetreat is a day-long, intensive practice event, focusing on the fundamentals of software development and design. By providing developers the opportunity to take part in focused practice, away from the pressures of 'getting things done', the coderetreat format has proven itself to be a highly effective means of skill improvement. Practicing the basic principles of modular and object-oriented design, developers can improve their ability to write code that minimizes the cost of change over time.
Thanks to @pawrog @adamjodlowski @daniula I had an amazing opportunity to be one of 2k devs experiencing Google Developer Day in Berlin. Here are some slides worth mentioning about all the good stuff that come with HTML5
I'm experiencing information overload. My head is about to EXPLODE. And I'm going to drop huge link dump on you right now.
There is this article How Jeff Bezos owns the web in my "read it later" list and 10 things they don't teach in college. There is a huge pile of work to be done. Messed up projects, started not finished. But this is not your problem.
If you're like me, I'm sure you have to find the time to learn new stuff to be shameless full-stack web developer every day.
Lea Verou pointed out that writing in a native language (other than English) is a sign of laziness and limits the potential audience.
It's hard to disagree with this statement. Looking at my own behavior, specifically how I search for information on the Web, I find I usually use English phrases because I assume that more people have written on the topic in English, leading to more relevant search results. It is hard to find better answers to technical problems on sites other than Stack Overflow where everyone uses one universal language: English.
Mąchocice k. Kielc goszczą tegoroczną konferencję PHPcon2011. Jest to wspaniała okazja do wymiany doświadczeń z innymi programistami face2face oraz możliwości posłuchania z jakimi problemami borykają się największe serwisy w Polsce (Allegro, NK). Stu osiemdziesięciu programistów w tym prelegenci tacy jak Lorna 'LornaJane' Mitchell, czy Derick Rethans.
Warto było przyjechać, mimo że pewnej grupie prezenterów należą się baty za brak należytego przygotowania swojego "show". Jeszcze nie koniec (#PHPconpl), ale zebrałem tymczasem kilka przydatnych linków wartych odwiedzenia...
