John Gladdy

Speakers Corner

 

Hyde Park Corner, London, England.
Every Sunday since at least 1872.

Between 2009 and 2012 I became a part of the ongoing street theatre that is Speakers Corner.

Graduating, slowly but surely, from detached photographic voyeur to fully-fledged participant/heckler/occasional bit player.

I have joined a cast of thousands that have come to this place to express their views, however controversial or off the wall, over the last hundred or so years. Religion is the current hot topic, especially Islam, but over the years the area has attracted notable political and human rights activists including Karl Marx, Vladimir Lenin and William Morris and still hosts a very lively Marxist forum and a selection of anarchist, conservative and socialist speakers.

This piece, as it stands, is not intended to answer any big questions or reveal any deep insight into the reasons people attend this place. I am not sure I am even qualified to ask those sorts of questions. I hope only in some small way to take you on a little sensory wander around the place. A selection of tapas if you like.

Enjoy.

 

Bio

John Gladdy (b. 1964) is an English photographer living in London.

He has no formal qualifications having been expelled from high school and no formal training as a photographer. He discovered he had a talent for image making while working with the photographer Brett Walker on a community project in 2003.

He came to photography very late in life and has worked his way back from initially using automated digital equipment to now using mainly fully manual film based equipment in a variety of formats. He processes and prints his own work, wherever possible using traditional darkrooms and materials.

His portrait work is held by collectors all over the world. He is currently resting in London trying to overcome heart problems and looks forward to being well enough to travel again and find a new project.

Started at 45 years old this is his first attempt at a long form photo essay.

GTAC 2010: Lessons Learned from Testability Failures

Google Test Automation Conference 2010 October 28-29, 2010 "Lessons Learned from Testability Failures" Presented by Esteban Manchado Velázquez, Opera Software ASA. Often, QA staff focus on the testing itself. However, ensuring a good level of testability is crucial for project quality. For the sake of discussion, we can consider a project ""testable"" if its code is easy to unit test, it is easy to deploy multiple times reliably, and it has good introspection capabilities. When the testability level of a project is not monitored, it can end up becoming a burden for the team. These testability problems usually add up in small steps, making them hard to detect if we do not make the effort to look for them. Some examples of testability problems are poor communication about expected behavior, high thresholds for making tests, and low traceability of bugs. These problems make not only testing, but also implementation, harder. It follows that testability is something that teams must devote a considerable amount of time and energy to. First, testability allows a project to grow to several teams. Second, by facilitating testing it enables more and better tests, which results in higher quality. Finally, many developers do not realise its importance and impact, thus it is not something that will typically be addressed unless someone focuses on it. Esteban Manchado Velázquez has been working on software development for around 10 years and is currently Quality Assurance Engineer and <b>...</b>
