Abstract: We try to evaluate the seriousness of an earthquake disaster as fast as possible after earthquakes worldwide because every minute counts for the injured trapped beneath their buildings. This presentation will explain the method and the data sets required to deliver quantitative estimates of human losses in less than 1 hour. The input errors affecting such an estimate the most are errors in the real-time epicenter and in the poorly known quality of buildings in the developing world. Uncertain attenuation and microzonation have an intermediately serious influence, whereas magnitude errors and population shifts have a minor influence, in general. The ratio of fatalities to injured, R, is poorly modeled in the calculation method. An analysis of R shows that persons in the industrialize world are about 50 times more likely to survive in a strong earthquake than in the developing world. R as a function of time shows that some countries have made good progress, others none, in protecting their citizens by building more resistant structures.

Abstract: This talk gives an introduction into the testing efforts at Google. It starts with an overview of the organizational structure and the development and testing processes used. Afterwards, the responsibilities of a specific role, the Software Engineer in Test, are outlined. The talk ends with an example of a testing technology developed at Google and made available as open source: Selenium Grid.
