Seattle Java User's Group (http://www.seajug.org)

In a world where Microservices and CI/CD is the norm, how do we make software testing simpler? How do we make it easy to explain, to understand and to write? Can we provide developers and framework makers a unified testing tool to make their lives simpler? I think we can, but first, we have to define the job to be done and reimagine software testing.

SPEAKER: Sharmarke Aden

Sharmarke is a software engineer who loves software craftsmanship and testing. He has worked at companies of various sizes, from startups to Fortune 50 companies. His primary passion and focus is in backend software development. Currently, Sharmarke works at Mercedes-Benz Research and Development North America where he’s building the next generation connected car cloud service. He spends some of his spare time working on Testify Project, a Java software testing tool that applies systems thinking to make software testing easy to understand, write and run. When he’s not coding, Sharmarke is playing with his infant son and trying to teach him sign language.

Angular Seattle

Angular Seattle is beating the August heat with talks from our community at Globant. Come hear about rewriting webdriver-manager, state management techniques, and Protractor!

🍋 Lightning talk: Rewriting webdriver-manager (Craig Nishina)

Working with a CLI is great unless it starts forcing users down a path that may or may not work for their use case. A reflection on node module testing and design and where do we go from here...

Craig Nishina is a software engineer at Google working on Ads and previously on the Protractor team. In a previous career, Craig worked as a civil engineer designing buildings, but he much prefers writing code over building structures. When he is not contributing to open source projects like Protractor and webdriver-manager, he enjoys playing golf and traveling.

🤠Lightning talk: Quick 'n' Dirty State Management (Nicole Oliver)

No time to implement NGRX? No problem, there are other ways to manage state! In this quick talk, we'll look at some lightweight techniques for inter-component communication in a small to medium-sized Angular application, without sacrificing flexibility and composability.

Nicole is a full-stack web developer specializing in UI, and currently working at Nintendo of America. She aspires to help others with a non-traditional computer science background (like her) to find a confident and happy place in tech.

🤖 Pragmatic testing of Angular applications with Protractor (Igor Soloydenko)

It's very well known how much effort the industry has put into making unit-testing popular and better understood. Arguably, the unit-testing exposes fundamental limitations when it comes to testing integration-heavy systems. End-to-end testing is a gap-filling technique that makes quality assurance process more complete when it comes to detecting integration-related defects.

Igor Soloydenko is a full-stack software engineer with the mission of helping teams succeed by catalyzing their gain of technical strength. Being in (micro)service development territory for many years he has accumulated useful knowledge about automated testing practices at all levels. Igor dedicates his free time to reading, amateur photography, and visiting parks with his wife, daughter, and dog, because not everything is about work.

* RSVPing on this meetup page will not register you for the event. *

Note that complimentary lunch is provided. :)

Learn what every CEO or business owner should know about Cash Management in this special workshop in partnership with Insperity.
Why you do it. How you do it, and some tricks of the trade.

Cash flow is a barometer of your business’ health. As long as you have cash flowing in and out of your business, you can keep the doors open for business, even if you are not profitable.

Gain a broad understanding of the basic principles and practices of cash and liquidity management and an understanding of its importance to the business.

While different market sectors have different cash flow dynamics, there are common cash management issues that affect all organizations to some degree. To prepare you for these issues the presentation examines the basic building blocks of cash management from the domestic perspective.

The presentation is delivered in a safe environment for you to ask questions and learn practical skills you can immediately apply back in the workplace. You’ll meet like-minded people and hopefully make some great contacts too.

Presenters:
Mark Mitchell, President of Creekside Consulting Company is an entrepreneurial senior executive. He has spent the past 20 years as an executive and consultant who integrates a broad range of skills and experience for early stage and growth companies.

Mark brings a valuable operational perspective as well as financial management, banking, insurance, and risk management experience with public and private companies. As President of Creekside Consulting Company, Mark has advised senior executives with technology and non-technology companies on financial and operational issues as a part-time CFO or COO.

Bruce Follansbee, from Expense Reduction Analysts (ERA). ERA has found that most companies do a good job of managing their core expenses, but yet they are still leaving 10%-30% on the table across many large overhead expense categories. ERA has over 600 consultants that validate this every day, and they continue to surprise companies by how much, and where, they find additional savings for their ERA clients.

With twenty-five years of experience in recovering additional cash flow for clients, ERA is in a unique position to describe the specific dynamics in the customer-supplier relationship that contribute to this problem, and
I will reveal the Top 10 most common Misconceptions about procurement held by most professionals in procurement roles and how those misconceptions further contribute to the problem.

The largest segment of the presentation is dedicated to sharing the Top 10 Best Practices that will show the audience how they can get similar results as ERA and take their expense management strategies from good to exceptional. We will describe key principles that financial executives will be able to implement in their own organizations to begin recovering significant cash flow to put back to work in their business.
