iOS testing frameworks and Appurify

Posted by Anonymous on 23 Sep 2013 at 17:17

Recently, I had a chance to experience some parts in the world of iOS testing. This post is my opinion on various testing frameworks, and the promising, powerful testing and debugging platform - Appurify.
 
- KIF: tests are written in Objective-C and divided into three "levels": Test Controller, Test Scenarios and Test Steps. Nice structure -- but we will have to create more files. KIF aims to directly manipulate the app and attempts to imitate actual user input. The limitation for that is KIF can not handle system views such as in-app purchase popups, which are outside of the app's scope.
 
- Subliminal: tests are based on UIAutomation while being written entirely in Objective-C. It was created to solve the problems KIF left - handling system scope views....

Text Mining in Apache Mahout

Posted by Anonymous on 29 Aug 2013 at 18:51

Lately we've been working on text mining using clustering techniques to group together similar documents. Apache Mahout has proven an excellent tool for this. Mahout is an open-source library that implements scalable machine learning algorithms. It is very fast and has excellent integration with other popular open-source Apache libraries, such as hadoop and lucene. One of mahout's core capabilities is clustering. To perform text mining, simply take a bunch of text documents, represent each document as a feature vector that says which words the document contains, and apply a clustering algorithm. A possible application is grouping blogs into different groups that can be targeted for ads.
 
Here's the basic workflow in mahout:
 
1. Start with a dataset, i.e. a...

Adventures in Machine Learning

Lately I have been thinking about how to recommend movies to movie watchers, purchases to shoppers, artists to music lovers. In general, if you have a bunch of items and a bunch of users, how do you figure out which items to recommend to which users?

There are many solutions to this problem. One extreme solution is to ask a movie connoisseur to learn the movie watcher's tastes, habits, lifestyle, and more. Then the movie connoisseur carefully picks out a few movies he thinks the movie watcher would enjoy. While this solution can produce incredibly personalized results, it is very time-consuming and does not scale. The solution on the opposite end of the spectrum is collaborative filtering. In collaborative filtering, you take all the existing data on which movie watchers like...

Paired Programming is worth the Expense

Content_paired_programming_east_agile_-_abstract

Research has long found that paired programming makes sense. But I still regularly come across people who feel it costs twice as much for the same results.

Actual scientific experimentation has found thatfrom a financial perspective, paired programming costs about 20% more to develop a given product, but it produces that product almost twice as fast and with fewer defects. Laurie Williams and Robert Kessler put it another way in "All I Really Need to Know about Paired Programming I learned in Kindergarden"[1]:

An experiment by John Nosek at Temple University studied 15 full-time, experienced programmers working for 45 minutes on a challenging problem, important to their organization, in their own environment, and with their own equipment. Five worked individually, 10 worked...
