The time has come for my favorite software testing conference – the Online Test Conf. This is a 2 day even that takes place on 3rd and 4th December 2019. This event is 100% online and free to ‘attend’.
Sign up here to watch the next conference and connect with other testers around the world.
Here are a few talks that I’m looking forward to:
- A Modern Tester with Scrum Master Hat
by Ana Maria Popa
- For the New Tester: Future Proofing Your Career
by Michael Bolton
- Adidas Testing Platform: A transformation story
by Jose Manuel Sampayo
- Empowering women in testing
by Lisa Crispin, Lena Wiberg and Alex Schladebeck
Can’t wait to watch any of the talks? Don’t worry, all OnlineTestConf talks are recorded and can be watched at a later date. This includes all talks from previous conferences.
Here are a few of my favorites from previous years:
- Testing your Metal, Drawing Parallels between Testing and Heavy Music
by Paul Grizzaffi (Spring 2018)
- If Universities won’t help us, how do we #MakeATester?
by Simon Prior (Spring 2018)
- Testing for cognitive bias in AI
by Peter Varhol (Fall 2018)
- Challenges and lessons learned when adopting testing as part of the team culture
by Claudia Badell (Fall 2018)
- 7 questions test managers are afraid to ask
by Joel Montvelisky (Spring 2019)
One thing I will always be grateful to the OnlineTestConf for is giving me a chance at public speaking. My very first talk was a lightning talk at the Spring 2018 conference. This gave me a huge confidence boost and encouraged me to apply to give a full length talk at the Fall 2018 conference. This was just the beginning. In the last year, I gave 2 talks at test meetups, 3 conference talks and several lightning talks. This would not have taken place if it wasn’t for the OnlineTestConf.
- Getting the most out of automated software test development
- If a tree falls in a forest… (Lightning talk, Fall 2018)
- Women in Test: Why we need diversity (Lightning talk, Spring 2018)
