World meet Patty, Patty say "Hello World"

  • Comments 10

When I became part of the Microsoft Surface Team almost 3 years ago, as part of the "New Employee Orientation" I had the chance to see how they used robots to stress test Microsoft Surface. I thought that was the most fascinating thing in the world. Until recently, the world did not know about Patty, our stress test robot -- it was one of our "secrets". Channel 9 recently posted an interview with Joe Farro, our Software Test Engineer in charge of Patty. I am posting the video for your enjoyment. And you don't even know about our most useful test tool known as Squiddy -- but that one will have to remain a secret. ;-)


  • Just speculating.. but does squidy have something to do with simulating thousands of finger presses.. or something along those lines?

  • "Daaaad, I want a Patty!'' ''What?'' ''Look at this video''

  • Looks good Luis!  Looking forward to the upcoming release.  

  • I almost watched this video with interest until I found that it required some batty Silverlight plugin that will only run if I restart my browser in 32bit mode. Obviously from the new MSFail suite...

  • @Kabadisha

    What browser are you using?

  • @Jushiro

    Firefox 5.0 on my side, and agree with Kabadisha, don't want to download Silverlight...

  • Using bazooka on the fly? Why just dont go to the kindergarten and let kids play with it?

  • Why would they not use their own engine???!?!?!?!?!?

  • Embrace the power of the Linux.  Drop the MS BS and move over to something FREE!!

  • In the world of HTML5, let's all install Silverlight! yey

    Almost started to watch the video. But since it didn't load in Chrome while I finished writing this comment, I will need to close the tab.
