Here are some of my key learnings on the last 3 talks I was able to attend at Testbash Brighton 2019 before I had to leave early to catch my flight back home. Continue reading “Testbash Brighton 2019 Conference Day Part II of II”
It’s been an intense month in a my personal life and even more intense (exciting!) months to come. So before I get too busy, let’s turn my notes (that can only be read by me), into a blog post!
In early April this year, I had the honour of speaking at Testbash Essentials on the Wednesday. I also had the opportunity to attend the main Testbash Conference on the Friday and learn a lot from the speakers. Continue reading “Testbash Brighton 2019 Conference Day Part I of II”

I had seen blog posts and activity on Twitter in the years leading up to my first ever Agile Testing Days (ATD(- it seemed like people really enjoyed this conference, so it’s safe to say I was glad to get this email from Uwe saying:
Just under two weeks ago, I flew to Belgrade for the first time, to present my talk: “What I wish I knew in my first year of testing” at the Starter track.

This is a two-part Experience Report, the first part will cover preparing my talk, the pre-Testbash Shindig and the first half of the conference. The second part will cover the second half of the conference and the Post-Testbash shindig.

I started preparing my talk around 2-2.5 months before the conference. But I didn’t properly gain momentum until about 1.5 months before my talk. Initially I tried to write the whole talk in Google Docs – but I found that didn’t work for me. Instead, I ended up creating the slides and writing speaker notes below.
I thought I’d share my experience at Romanian Testing Conference 2017 with the use of photos 🙂
Up until yesterday, I had only gone to testing conferences – for me these were a safe familiar place. I was with my “own kind”. So when my boyfriend asked me a few months ago if I wanted to go to Leetspeak, I surprised myself a bit by saying yes.

Last year, I wrote a two-part reflection on my experience at Let’s Test, which detailed every session I went to. This year, I’ve decided to take a different approach. While there’s a lot I can say about every session I went to this year – I feel my time would be better spent on focussing on a few things that I took away from Let’s Test 2016 Continue reading “My 4 Main Takeaways from Let’s Test 2016”
