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.
Everyone is welcome!
Do you have a passion, interest or curiosity in software testing & quality assurance? Great, you're in for a treat! Whether you're a seasoned expert or just taking your first steps in the industry, we're pretty sure we've got something for you (and vice-versa).
• 18:00 - Food & drinks
• 18:30 - About the evening
• 18:45 - Lightning talks
• 19:15 - Open Space
• Chill & have a drink
We start off with lightning talks, where you can give a 5-10 minute presentation about something cool you want to share. These are usually rather informal, so don't worry if you've never done this before - this is a great opportunity to give a talk in a friendly environment.
The Open Space!
We have a couple of rooms where 30 minute sessions are run in parallel. A session can be an informal discussion in comfy chairs, a demo or presentation, practicing testing dojo’s together, mob testing, or anything in between. There are no requirements for you before you can join a session - just bring yourself, an open mind and your opinions.
Before the Open Space starts, anyone can suggest sessions about something they want to learn about. Whether you're an expert on some topic, or you're just getting your feet wet, the only requirement to run a session is that you're there to host it.
A safe space as well.
Our meetup is dedicated to providing a harassment-free meetup experience for everyone, regardless of gender, gender identity and expression, age, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, ethnicity, religion (or lack thereof), or technology choices. To enable this, we expect everyone attending to follow the code of conduct at http://confcodeofconduct.com & https://www.ministryoftesting.com/testbash-code-of-conduct
