We have a special presentation from the tech department of the members only shopping forerunner, GILT.
Matt will discuss mobile UI testing and automation and how these are performed at Gilt. He'll review some of the tools that Gilt has considered using and describe what the company uses now, and will describe one or two examples in greater detail. The talk will mostly focus on native UI testing with Appium
Matt Isaacs - He joined Gilt in May 2013 as a mobile engineer and focuses mainly on automation and testing. Since graduating from Northwestern University with a Master's degree in Electrical Engineering, he has steadily moved up the technology stack--from hardware engineer, to kernel developer, to mobile developer. Not quite a front-end expert, he's mostly interested in app internals, optimization and testing. In a past life he worked on control systems for tokamaks at the Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory and at the start-up Bug Labs.
About GILT - In spring 2007, Kevin Ryan recognized a market opportunity to start online flash sales in the United States and introduce consumers to a new, exciting ecommerce experience. He set out to build a core founding team, and brought on Mike Bryzek and Phong Nguyen as the technical masterminds. From the start they worked to create the fastest, most exciting shopping experience online. They strove to ensure that all customers who shopped on Gilt received unparalleled customer service from the moment they entered the virtual doors, to the instant the gleaming box arrived at their doorstep. Alexis Maybank and Alexandra Wilkis Wilson, long time friends and devoted New York City designer sample sale shoppers, were next to join the team, bringing their personal passions for online shopping to the group. Alexis, with a background in eCommerce at eBay and AOL, and Alexandra, with a background in luxury goods from Bulgari and Louis Vuitton, set out to build the rest of the Gilt team. They got the word out to savvy shoppers across the country, and set their sights on the best designer brands and services to be featured on Gilt.com.
