Just how critical is testing to the success of a software project? And how can you make these tests simple yet maintainable, flexible, and efficient? This unique book offers essays from 25 leading software testers that illustrate the qualities and techniques necessary to make testing an art in itself. Through personal anecdotes, you'll learn how each of these professionals developed best practices for testing a wide range of software projects involving XMPP, GUI tools, Open Map applications, and more. Topics of this book include: OLPC project testing - Mel Chua (The Open Planning Project); Open Maps application testing - Steve Coast (founder of OpenStreetMap); AbiWord open source app testing - Kamran Khan (AbiWord word processor); GNU Compiler Collection tool testing - Mark Mitchell (GCC); GUI Tools - Adam Christian and Mikeal Rogers (OSAF/Mozilla); Python Language testing - Neal Norwitz; Network testing frameworks - Jim Walker (OpenSolaris); and, XMPP Protocol testing - Remko Troncon (Jabber). "Beautiful Testing" provides you with knowledge gained from years of experience that you can put to the test on your own projects.Spectacle Media Spectacles of the Contemporary Moment Guy Debord and The Society of the Spectacle In This Book Chapter 1: Barack Obama, the Power Elite and Media Spectacle Media Spectacle, Celebrity, and Contemporary U.S. Politics Media Spectacle in Election 2008 Politics of the Spectacle in the Contemporary Era The Obama Presidency and its Challenges Chapter 2: The North African Arab Uprisings: From Tunisia to Egypt to Libya and Beyond Sparks in Tunisia Insurrection in Egypt The Qaddafi Spectacle Tumult in the Arab World The Arab Uprisings and Counterrevolution Chapter 3: War in Libya: Challenges of Liberal Humanitarian Interventions Phase One: No-fly Zone Phase Two: NATO Takes Command Month Three: Stalemate The Arab Uprisings and Counterrevolution (continued) Libyan Rebels Gain Momentum Libya Month Three: From Stalemate to Endgame?
