What we're about

All test professionals and software development people are welcome — programmers, managers, designers, architects, technical support folk, documentors, project managers, etc.

Sydney Testers is about smarter software testing. We welcome any IT professional that performs or supports the practice of testing. This may be manual testers, automation specialists, performance, security, test managers, developers (acceptance testing and unit testing), devops crew, end users (UAT testing), and others...

We are a group of people with a focus to improve testing for Sydney. We operate under a shared set of values and principles. We seek to practice high-value testing rather than so-called "best practice".

Anyone is welcome to join this meetup group that wants to do any of the following:

• Stay fresh with the latest trends

• Network with testing professionals

• Learn new testing techniques and tools

Sydney Testers holds monthly networking meetups and talks.

Recruiters, please read our policy on recruitment (http://www.meetup.com/Sydney-Testers/pages/Recruitment__Policy)

You can also join the conversation by tweeting @SydneyTesters, or joining our Slack conversation group (email the lead to get access)
