An Open Space for all things Software Crafting and Testing.
hosted by 'The Belgian Pension Service' - working on hard on learning the foundations of the technical excellence required in software delivery.
(including light sandwich dinner :)
Do you have a passion, interest or curiosity in software development and testing? Great, you're in! Whether you're a seasoned expert or just taking your first steps in the industry, we're pretty sure we've got something for you (and vice-versa).
We start off with lightning talks, where you can give a 5-7 minute presentation about something cool you want to share. These are usually rather informal, so don't worry if you've never done this before - this is a great opportunity to give a talk in a friendly environment.
The Open Space itself!
We usually have 4-6 rooms where 30 minute sessions are run in parallel. A session can be an informal discussion in comfy chairs, a demo or presentation, practicing katas together, or anything in between. There are no requirements for you before you can join a session - just bring yourself, an open mind and your opinions.
Before the Open Space starts, anyone can suggest sessions about something they want to learn about. Whether you're an expert on some topic, or you're just getting your feet wet, the only requirement to run a session is that you're there to host it.
A safe space as well.
Our meetup is dedicated to providing a harassment-free meetup experience for everyone, regardless of gender, gender identity and expression, age, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, ethnicity, religion (or lack thereof), or technology choices.
