The night is coming together nicely & is now twinned with the Liverpool Tester Gathering!

As well as networking & a (limited) kitty behind the bar, we also have :


Why are we here? Duncan Nisbet

Welcome to the first Liverpool STC meetup / Tester Gathering.

Whats that smell? Stuart Taylor

How Test Teams are perceived in a negative light & how we as Testers need to re-educate the masses & behave appropriately in order to get the positive recognition we deserve.

Interactive Session

Testing The Time Machine -

How Marty could have tested the Delorean had he not been interrupted by Libyan terrorists

A (brief!) introduction to exploratory testing, the use of heuristics & how they can compliment a scripted testing approach.

We'll then apply what we know about exploratory testing & follow a heuristic in order to help Marty test the Delorean.

P.S. Having watched Back To The Future isn't a prerequisite!

Open Discussion

The value of certification in the software testing industry

We'd like to discuss certification in software testing & peoples views on the value that certification provides to the individuals, companies & recruitment consultants.

We have a nice spread of people attending, including those doing the recruiting, those doing the applying & those people stuck in the middle!
