A practical guide to selling your ideas, Emanuel Martonca
We all have ideas. A few hundreds of them every week. Some are good, some are not, some of them are easily done, others require years to implement. But they all have in common one thing: to be worth anything, they have to be put in practice. And the question is HOW? How do you convince your colleagues, your boss, your friends that your idea is the best one?

HTTP authentication in automated testing - problems and solutions, Igor Cernopolc
Most of today web applications have colourful login forms, with additional support for lost passwords, registering new users, selecting signing in with Facebook or Google accounts. At the same time, most of the back office applications and intranet sites still use the old style http authentication method. Testing this kind of non-browser dialogs becomes a nightmare for an automation tester. Only few dedicated (and expensive) tools have the necessary support for handling it. This talk has the goal to discuss which are the main problems encountered by testers and how the user/password dialogs can be easily managed using a combination of free tools and Java.
