As a fairly recent convert to the job description "tester", Sarah will talk about her realization that testing is not quite as it may seem to outsiders. Why do we decide to become testers? And what motivates people who are testers?
Sarah will talk through some of the things that changed her mind about testing and share some of the best and worst things about being a tester.
How does the workshop work?
After the presentation we enter "Open Season" and attendees are encouraged to discuss, question, challenge, and share ideas on the topic. Participation is expected, so come prepared to contribute! Structure and facilitation will follow the same format as KWST and is best described in the following link - http://adam.goucher.ca/?p=234
Will there be food and drink?
Yes. This workshop is free of charge thanks to sponsorship from Assurity and includes pizza, beer and non-alcoholic beverages.
What time does it finish?
Doors open at 5.30pm. The first session runs 5.45pm - 6.45pm, then a 15 minute break for pizza, followed by a second session from 7pm - 8pm.
How do I attend?
RSVP for the event. Numbers are limited to the first 20 participants, but if you're keen please add yourself to the waiting list. We often get a big waiting list that disappears closer to the time, as attendees drop out due to schedule conflicts or illness. Testers of all experience levels welcome.
