South West Test is back for 2020!

Our very first meetup of the year will be held at Scott Logic’s brand new offices (please note the address is different to previous meetups they have hosted).

We have some great talks to kick off the New Year in style so get the date in your diary and we'll see you soon!
18:00 - Arrive at Scott Logic’s new offices

Have a chat with some of the other South West Test(ers), grab some pizza and have a beer (or 2!)

18:30- Talk #1
Ciara Gardiner from ScottLogic

“Testing in SAFe and what happens when it goes wrong”

Ciara will be talking about her experience on a Scaled Agile For enterprise project and the challenges associated with doing thorough testing on it – specifically around the release pipeline and how you can carry out your regression tests.

Short Break

Talk #2

Bradley Atkins from BJSS will be presenting his take on synchronising dependencies across all stages of a pipeline…

• Ever had a feature go through a green build, only to find it “Passed”
because the tests didn’t run for the new feature?
• Tired of data contention issues when switching a test framework to
multi-threaded mode?
• Want to fail-fast instead of waiting for a failure in a late pipeline
• Want your test frameworks to work in any environment without
fudging your code to suit each one?

Grab your chance to hear Bradley share his experience of dealing with these issues and more, before he apparently plans to gives up IT and becomes an African goat farmer! 🐐

We look forward to seeing you there!


The event is open to all:

Although this is billed as a "Test" meet up it's not just for Testers, it's open to anyone who wants to come along to hear an amazing talk and interact with some lovely like-minded people. Please do share the meetup details with your friends, workmates or anyone who you think would love to attend.
