More and more, we work in places where continuous development is championed, MVPs are common, pre-release testing is limited, and the pressure is on to constantly redefine features in newer, faster, better ways. Updates happen constantly, without notice, and the way things work shifts under our feet more often than not. This kind of fast-paced, constant change moves the web forward and challenges traditional testing practices. Let's talk about how testing is changing and how we can build a better, stronger culture of testing.
Please note: This is a facilitated discussion; participation is expected.
Sheri Bigelow works remotely for Automattic, the makers of WordPress.com, where she helps people create beautiful websites they love. Her team is responsible for protecting the user experience through triage and testing. She can often be found photographing WordCamps, skiing the Rockies, kayaking the Adirondacks, biking the Wasatch Range, or exploring the world.
How does the workshop work?
After the presentation we enter "Open Season" and attendees are encouraged to discuss, question, challenge, and share ideas on the topic. Participation is expected, so come prepared to contribute! Structure and facilitation will follow the same format as KWST and is best described in the following link - http://adam.goucher.ca/?p=234
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, 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.
