BrighTest's first meet up with a talk and show and tell!
We will be meeting at Crunch Ltd. Academy right behind Hove station.
Talk By Dan Billing:
The Testing of Fear
"The oldest and strongest emotion of mankind is fear, and the oldest and strongest kind of fear is fear of the unknown” HP Lovecraft: Supernatural Horror in Literature
Dan will talk about how to recognise how fears can be managed and utilised in order to overcome complex testing challenges by helping us to understand some of the key psychological thinking that surrounds fear and how it can impact our testing . We can then start to begin to develop techniques to manage our professional fears, and be able to support and nurture this learning within teams and the community.
