GTAC Videos and Slides Available

Posted by Lydia Ash, GTAC Conference Chair

The Google Test Automation Conference 2008 was a smashing success, and in no small part due to all of our presenters and participants. A wonderful thank you from all of us at Google to everyone that participated! The tone of the conference really struck me as I watched how everyone came together around various topics. I don't think we would have had trouble keeping the conversations going if there was an entire day dedicated to the moderated discussions.

We were able to get the slide decks from our presenters. These are listed below with their video link.
We will be evaluating what location the next GTAC should be held, and your comments will help shape the next conference. Building on the successes in the past, next year should be even better! Stay tuned for a Save the Date notice sometime in the spring.
