• 20# South West Test

    OVO Energy

    We're going to 'slide' (haha, get it?) into our next event which will be held by the awesome team at OVO Energy (just near Temple Meads). Another interesting evening with some epic speakers that have already been confirmed! We'll be discussing everything from upcoming technologies, tools and trends around automation testing and much more. Get the date in your diary and we'll see you soon! ______________________________________________________________________________________ 18:00 - Arrive at OVO Energy Have a chat with some of the other South West Test(ers), grab some pizza and have a beer (or 2!) 18.05 - Talk #1 Bruce Hughes - QA Analyst at Fresh8 Gaming "Meetings from bed: tools and techniques for remote ceremonies" When it comes to daily stand ups, retrospectives and other agile ceremonies (or meetings in general), there is an automatic tendency to think that just because you need to communicate with each other directly, that you need to be in a room together to do it effectively. This is simply untrue. I will share a lovely selection of (free) tools and behaviours we use at Fresh8Gaming to make engaging and useful workshops with a remote-first mindset - and the super reasons why! More about Bruce here > https://www.sr2rec.co.uk/bruce/ Short Break Talk #2 Simon Stratton CEO of Safebear ** 'Getting Technical' Simon will be talking about why technical testing is one of the most exciting places to be in 2019. He'll be talking chaos monkeys, contract testing, mutation testing, hacking your browser, capture-the-flag, test assemblies, visual and snapshot testing, automation testing throughout the stack and some cool resources that every tester should know about. We look forward to seeing you there! ** Simon at Safebear has very kindly offered a discount of 50% off any of their Test Automation training courses to all members of South West Test.
