Test the Docs Amsterdam
Fellow documentarians, let’s meet up to talk about testing! Testing is a great way to ensure that docs are meeting the high expectations of our readers (and ourselves!). But there are so many tools to investigate, and methodologies to learn, that "testing" gets stuck in your backlog – instead of being put into practice. We've invited our community member (and testing guru), Sven, to present on his vast experiences with documentation testing. We’ll then share and discuss our own experiences with testing documentation. So we look forward to seeing you all in the heart of Amsterdam, at Keizersgracht 617. We really enjoyed our last meetup, and will do our best to make sure that this time is even better! -------- TOPIC "Test the Docs" -------- DATE 03 December 2018 -------- WHERE Amsterdam, Keizersgracht 617 (Adyen office). -------- SCHEDULE 18:30-19:00 Doors open! Snacks & drinks. 19:00-19:15 Introduction. 19:20-20:00 Presentation from Sven. 20:00-21:30 Open discussion. -------- NOTES • We are planning to start at 19:00, but you can come earlier.

Diversity is one of our huge strengths, but it can also lead to communication issues. To support a welcoming environment for all, regardless of individual differences, we have a few ground rules that we ask people to adhere to when they participate in this community activities. These rules apply equally to founders, organizers, moderators, sponsors, and affiliates – in short, to all participants. See you soon!
