Sheffield Test Gathering: Test is Broken, Fix It! : 14th May.
Please signup here
The format for the 2nd Sheffield Test Gathering:
I will be delivering a talk titled: Test is Broken, Fix It! This will be the talk that I am delivering at the Romanian Test Conference and I would greatly appreciate your honest feedback.So what's it about?The introduction will probably lead you to believe that my talk is going to be about QA strategic planning, or a personal account of my previous and current experiences. Well it's going to be both, but my main point will be that I want to rip apart the formalised old processes and move on with the new.Currently you would think this is actually happening especially with all the blogs, tweets, books and courses on various forms of agile methodologies but in reality although some parts of these frameworks are viewed to be beneficial and desirable in theory, implementing the changes often fail due to lack of fully understanding what is actually involved and how long it will take to see results.This is the main question I will be exploring in my talk: Why is it that software development tends to follow hierarchical structures, top down approaches, with smatterings of coordinated team interactions and involvement? Discuss...If you would like to deliver a lightning talk, demo an interesting application relevant to testing or take part in anyway please contact me directly and I'll be more than happy to welcome you into the group.Sponsorship for this event is also more than welcome.
And more good news:This Event is being sponsored by, James Aspinall. James is kindly putting on food for all attendees:James specialises purely in Testing from a recruitment point of view. He spends a lot of time reading and learning about changes and breakthroughs in the Testing Field expanding his understanding of testing skills without the practical hands on experience. You could call him a “Theoretical Tester”, a Tester with no Testing experience.
Hi All, Only 5 days to go until the inaugural Sheffield Test Gathering and I have some exciting news, we now have two speakers for the night.
Paul Berry: Who will be talking about "The Five Myths of Testing."
Iain Mc who will be showing us how to use SubSteps a BDD extension to Cucumber.
This is really exciting news and I would hope that you all show them a warm appreciation for volunteering to talk and supporting this event. We also have 30 people confirmed that they will be attending this event, which is brilliant news. See you all on Thursday 28th March at the Rutland Arms, upstairs. Stephen Blower
