What we're about

We bring together people who are passionate about testing and all aspects of quality, providing a platform for sharing ideas and learning through experience-based sessions and workshops.

We also run the MoT Auckland Slack community to keep discussions going outside of meetups, with specialist channels for questions and discussion and links to online courses and challenges. Join us here: https://join.slack.com/t/wetestauckland/shared_invite/enQtNDY3OTQyMTg0MTgyLTAwMDk1NGMyOTc0ZDkwZTUxMTFiMzRiNjE2Mjc2MTI3ZWU0ZmY2MzJlNGJkMGQzY2MwZDY2OTMzMTI3ZjNlNTY

Movie Night - Learning to Ask for Testability - Nicola Owens

To continue our Testability theme, our next Movie Night is from Auckland's own Nicola Owen and her talk on Learning to Ask for Testability Presentation Bio: When I started in my new team, I realised that I was the first tester the team had had. Up until that point, the only testers that were involved with their project were the ones that tested in Production after they were finished building the feature. The thing is, testability had never been an issue for this team - until I joined. My first few weeks were spent asking for things, asking for test data, asking for more test data - eventually asking to learn how to create test data (from a separate team). I asked to learn how to edit the HTML, to test different scenarios because the test data was missing. I wanted access to GitHub so I could see the pull requests being done to address different stories in JIRA. I wanted it all! I was a demanding tester. And after a while, things got easier. I was even able to help developers make testability easier on their local machine, so they could debug faster. I want to share my story on how I learned to ask for increased testability, and how I learned what exactly testability means after I realized this what I had been focussing on this whole time. Speaker Bio: Nicola Owen is a Test Consultant with House of Test in Sweden, originally from Auckland, New Zealand. After studying Economics and German at university she decided to delve into the world of testing and hasn’t looked back since. She’s well involved in the testing community as a co-instructor of the BBST Foundations courses and a frequent meet-up attendee. When she’s not at work you’ll find her watching cooking shows, making cookies or running as she listens to dance music. Nicola blogs about software testing at nickytests.blogspot.com.
