The Leeds Tester Gathering is a community event run for testers by testers. The format of the event provides the opportunity for networking 6-6:30pm, guest speakers between 6:30-8pm, then the chance for more networking (until late for those who want to) with a free bar!
We are pleased to announce the guest speaker for this event is Dr Toby Sucharov, delivering a talk on Continuous Performance Testing. Toby’s talk will focus on performance testing in enterprise companies exploring why less is more, sooner is better, and knowledge is king.
Toby is a Director at Corosin and describes himself as an IT consultant, an Agile evangelist, a frequent developer and a champion of the downtrodden performance tester. Join Toby for this thought provoking talk where he will highlight and discuss a number of key questions, including: how should we approach the job as performance testers? When should we get involved? How should we start to analyse an enterprise environment? How can performance testing cope with Agile environments and continuous delivery? And how can we modernise the way we do performance testing?
Our second speaker for the evening is James Salt (The Test People) with his session ‘Technical Testing Evaluated’.
Is technical testing a fad?
Does the business just talk the talk of technical testing?
How should I get up to speed with technical testing?
These questions will be evaluated with the help of real data and plenty of room for a discussion.
James is a Consultant Software Engineer in Test at The Test People. His stint as a functional tester is what started him on the path to writing software for a living. You can find him on Twitter as @saltpy.
