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.

Mat Stollman is a mobile software quality assurance analyst for Quicken Loans. He helps build Quicken Loans mobile testing infrostructure using and testing it out with various open source frameworks. He also likes cats.

 

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).

About Tom Scavo


Tom is a long-time developer, teacher, and general technologist (you know the type). An enterprise SAML technologist by trade, Tom is finally coming to appreciate the utility of lightweight APIs and the security technologies springing up around them.

Tom lives and works in Ann Arbor, Michigan. He is Operations Manager for the InCommon Federation (incommon.org), a trust federation of higher education institutions in the US. He loves to write, cycle, and enjoys films of all kinds.


Lightning Talk No. 3

Accessing Google API's with OAuth 2.0

 

Google has a wealth of information hidden behind its API's. Much of it requires user authentication, OAuth 2.0 is Google's preferred mechanism for authenticating users. This talk will focus on what OAuth 2 is, how it works, registering an app on the Google API console, Google's libraries for performing OAuth 2 authentication,  and some examples of working with Google API's.  

 

About Dave Turner 
 
Dave Turner loves to code, and has been doing it in some form since 1999. He is experienced in many areas of software design and development including;  database, web, desktop, automation processing and mobile devices.
