Dear PyLadies and friends!
We are happy to announce that this community is alive again.

Every developer knows the importance of testing before going live. That's why we organise this testing workshop, led by two experienced female software engineers. We will walk through together and learn more about Pytest, best practices and how proper tests are done.
If we have some time left after the workshop, we would like to invite you for a short panel discussion to go more in-depth about testing.

Olga Sentemova

Olga is currently working as a Software Developer at L1NDA. She has an extensive background in testing. She is mostly working with Python, interested in infrastructure and low-level programming. For the last two years Olga is living in Amsterdam. Originally from Russia, Olga studied Mathematics at Moscow State University.

Anna Nikulina

Anna is a software engineer specialised in testing. Eleven years ago she started as a Delphi programmer. "Once I deleted several rows in the nuclear power station database... I almost became grey for those two minutes until I realised I can revert my changes." This was a life-changing moment for Anna - she decided to become a testing PRO. Anna mostly worked with embedded testing and used Python for it. She is a mother of two lovely kids and is open about the fact that it can be challenging to be a mom and an engineer at the same time. She is excited to help other women to find their own way.
