What we're about

The North West Tester Gathering is a community of people who are passionate about software testing, test process and agile software development.

It is a an informal forum for sharing knowledge and experiences with other like minded individuals from many organisations.

Whether you are a budding beginner or battle scarred practitioner, all are welcome.

We aim to provide a meeting place and hold regular events for anyone involved in testing (mostly) software products.

Come and meet fellow testers, share stories and experiences about tools and techniques which may, or may not, have solved testing problems.

The group will decide what topics we cover at our meetings - and what tools will be demonstrated and taught.

So if you want to know how to integrate Slim with Webdriver, how BDD should be used from a testers perspective, or even how Selenium IDE can be used to automate regression testing on your website, then join the group and request then vote for the topic of your choice.

We look forward to meeting you at a meetup soon!

Amy & Ken.
