DORS/CLUC 2009, Zagreb, Croatia

by Željko Filipin

Last week I was at DORS/CLUC 2009. It is three day open source conference in Zagreb, Croatia.

The first day I had a lightning talk titled something like: How did delivering our web application to client look like before we automated tests and how it looks today? It was just an introduction to my Watir talk the next day.

The talk was a lot of fun. I really like to show off how Watir is useful, easy to use and, of course, just cool. :) This was the first time I did some live Watir coding using Linux and Firewatir and I had some problems, but nothing serious. (I usually use Windows and Watir::IE.) Slides are available.

Also, this was the first time I had a workshop (about 3 hours). We spent a few hours doing some basic Watir tests.

It was nice to see what other people are doing and to meet some familiar faces. There was a lot of intersting presentations, and also a lot of presentations that were a bit boring to me. The usual. The best presentation was by Dobrica Pavlinušić on freeing hardware. Topic not really interesting to me, but Dobrica is just the funniest presenter I have seen so far.

There is Twitter #dorscluc channel, Flickr dorscluc2009 tag and #dorscluc channel at projected by one projector all the time.
