A lot of misinformation seems to circulate about testing - about what exactly our role in a project is, how testing should (or shouldn't) be done, or why it's done at all. This session will be about ways to tackle the tricky situations in which these misinformed ideas arise to confront us: how to respond with accuracy and tact; how to educate people by providing the information they may need to think about testing in a more beneficial way. Come to this workshop with a mind ready to challenge and change thinking - both your own and others'.
JOSHUA RAINE has been a tester with Statistics New Zealand for 2 and a half years, but has been testing for what seems to be his whole life. His experience has generally been in internal facing Agile projects, but not exclusively.
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 from 5.15pm. 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.
