The Ministry of Testing exists to advance the software testing industry in a fun, safe, professional and forward thinking way.
Our meetups exist as a way to bring people together to talk and learn about good and authentic testing. We encourage everyone who is interested in making better software products to come along and participate.
Please note revised date due to (awesome!) speaker availability
We’re back! A new name, a new venue and finally Simon has a co-host! Welcome Stu Johnson to the MoT Bucks family! And what better way to celebrate new beginnings with pizza, drinks, a speaker and some TestSphere to get us all talking.
We’ll split the evening into the following:
6.30 - 7pm - Networking and Pizza
7 - 7.45 - Talk
7.45 - 8 - Break
8pm to close - TestSphere
Speaker: Gwen Diagram
Title: Skills to pay the bills! Creating testers for the future
Bio: Gwen Diagram is a technology professional from Leeds who specialises in testing. She is an avid automation evangelist with a focus on testing complemented by repeatable build processes with monitoring. She has had varied roles throughout her career including Scrum Master at a Start Up, Engineering Manager at a bank and DevOps kid at a large Financial Services organisation.
As a strong believer in making the tech industry as open and punk as possible, she co-organises a twice yearly free day long testing conference called the Leeds Testing Atelier. She speaks regularly at local meet-up groups, Agile Yorkshire and Leeds DevOps, duels with creative types at events like the Tech Off, speaks internationally at conferences such as Nordic Testing Days in Tallinn and was the closing keynote at Agile on the Beach in Falmouth, UK in 2018.
Outside of work, you will usually find her hanging around a Natural History Museum somewhere in the world marvelling at how incredibly excellent dinosaurs are, feeding pigeons or ducks or obsessing over transport.
