A Tale of Three Lightning Talks
Join the Detroit Google Developers Group (GDG) for an evening of three fine lightning talks (hence the title). Each speaker will get 15-20 minutes to present and at the end of the evening we will have a question and answer period.
The order of the presentations will be:
Lightning Talk No. 1
Mat Stollman will present on Behavior Driven Development (BDD) and testing Mobile Applications using the BDD style. In particular he will cover UI testing of mobile applications. There are many tools out there currently to UI test mobile applications and Mat has experimented with many of them. He will cover how he recently started using a testing tool called Cucumber to run automated acceptance tests on Android and iOS devices.

Lightning Talk No. 2
Build a Gateway with Google OpenID APIs
Google offers many services and some of these (like Google Apps) are federated; that is, a user can use a non-Google account to log into Google Apps. On the flip side, can a Google account be used to log into non-Google services? The answer is yes, since Google is an OpenID identity provider.
This lightning talk describes how to federate Google identities with non-Google services. In particular, we will demo a prototype that gateways Google identity (based on OpenID 2.0) into the InCommon Federation (a SAML federation of higher ed institutions).
