On Thursday 29th October 2020 was the next test bash conference – test.bash();
Due to the changing circumstances caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, the way conferences are run has had to change a little – well, a lot! As a reult, this conference has had its name changed to test.bash(‘online’);
But its not just the name that has changed. This year, instead of asking prospective speakers to submit abstracts, speakers were asked to complete challenges and submit abstracts where they describe their solution. The chosen speakers were then invited to present experience reports where they talk about how they completed the challenge.
I completed the WebUI and Accessibility challenge and was invited to present experience reports for both. This was the first time I’d presented a live demo at a conference (and I was doing 2 of them) so I was naturally nervous. Fortunately my prayers to the demo gods were answered and everything went off without a hitch.
It was interesting seeing other peoples solutions, especially those who completed the same challenge. As well as experience reports, there were 4 ask me anything sessions. I find sketch noting technical presentations hard, so have only created sketch notes for the ask me anything sessions.
Over the next week, I will be publishing a series of blog posts where I discuss how I completed the WebUI and Accessibility challenges in more detail. In the meantime, here is a link to my solution for the WebUI challenge and a list of tools used in the Accessibility challenge.
