Date and Time: February 13th, doors open 6:30pm(GMT) and talk will start at 6:45pm(GMT)

Speaker bio: Areti Panou
A mathematician by vocation, a software tester by profession, I am now working as a cloud quality coach, helping development teams within SAP come up with cloud test strategies that best fit their needs.
I’ve recently started blogging about the questions that occupy my mind regarding software quality, testing and development.
Areti has spoken at number of conferences including SwanseaCon and TestBash Manchester.

Even today, there exist development teams in which the whole burden of product quality falls on testers’ shoulders. This can cause from delays of deliveries to fights within the team about severe bugs deployed to production. By converting a tester into a quality coach, the quality load can be distributed, helping everybody in the team work better.


6:30-6:45 Pizza and chat
Pizza will be served before the talk and there will be an opportunity to meet other testers in the cork community.

Areti will deliver her talk and take questions
