Software QA & Testing Meetup – August 2015 Meetup Scheduled

Software QA & Testing Meetup

Attention Ohio Testers:

Last month’s meeting was full of great discussion as we discussed “testing vs. checking”.

August 25th’s meeting will have two focuses for the evening and promises to be quite informative.  Here is the planned agenda:

1) CAST 2015 – A look back

  • For those that were able to attend CAST 2015, we will discuss your personal Experience report(s).
  • For those able to watch any part of webCast 2015, we would like your view about the event as well.
  • Open Discussion on Lessons Learned from the conference.  Action items that you might have gotten from the event?

2) Testing Language

Inspired by the recent blog series by Jean–Paul Varwijk on Testing Definitions (http://arborosa.org/) and after July’s meetup, our group thought it would be a good idea to get to a common vocabulary or “testing language”.  We will begin that journey in part two of the evening.

Concepts to look into include:

@PeteWalen, @dynamoben, Dee Ann, AST board, facilitators – thank you for your hard work & for making #CAST2015 so accessible from afar

Surprised (but not surprised) that an emergent theme of #CAST2015 is the upcoming absorption of the testing role by the development role.

When a tester joke falls flat at a testers conference you may be doing it wrong @PeteWalen #CAST2015

Jean Ann Harrison ‏@JA_Harrison
#CAST2015 I didn’t think I could be so inspired by not physically being at the conference.  WOW what a conference!   Not missing next year!

I’m on Twitter overload,it’s hard to even keep up, much less post, when I’m learning and collaborating this much #CAST2015

Here’s another edition of Tweet Bits. By far, CAST is one of my favorite conferences to follow on Twitter and they also have an awesome webCAST.

Below are some of the more notable Tweets that I read from the conference in it’s first couple of days while watching #CAST2015 on Twitter.

I hope you enjoy. If you like these, be sure to check out all the Tweets for yourself.  Watch for CAST2015 – Day 2 Tweets coming soon.

Thank you to all those that took the time to live Tweet for all of us that could not make it to the conference.
