Software QA & Testing Meetup – April 2016 Meetup Scheduled

Software QA & Testing Meetup

Attention Ohio Testers:

Our next meetup is scheduled for April 26, 2016.  We are just a few weeks away!  Matthew Eakin has volunteered to give a presentation on “Cucumber as a Collaboration Tool.”  Having heard Matthew speak on several occasions, I am sure this will be an interesting discussion.

For all of the details for our meetup and to RSVP, be sure to visit the Software QA & Testing Meetup on meetup.com.

If you are going to be in the Columbus area, we would love to see you there!


I am going to endeavor to try to post raw notes or recaps from previous meetups on a more frequent basis than I have in the past.

March’s meeting featured Damian Synadinos speaking on the topic of “Commutication – An Exploration of Idea Transfer With Words.”

1. What attracted you to speaking at GTR 2016 this year?

A couple of things really – the huge upside opportunity to learn from the community (attendees & speakers) while sharing my experiences with them and an opportunity to connect and network with the latest happenings in the testing world.

I had heard of this event and found it a good  place where in the focus of events is in testing and innovative ideas. Through this event we can convey all the modern ways of moving the tech industry to innovative thinking and processes.

Tweet Bits from #STPCon Spring 2016

TweetBitsLogo

After a bit of a hiatus, Tweet Bits has returned.  STPCon Spring 2016 was held in San Francisco, California from April 4-7.

The hashtag to watch for the conference was #STPCon if you want to look over the full stream for yourself (which I highly suggest to get a better feel from the conference).

THANK YOU to all those testers that took the time to post during the event!  It really helps members of the testing community that were unable to attend.

As seen on Twitter, here is the list I pulled coming in reverse order.

Conference first for me: hearing “The Village People” played as dramatic flair in a presentation. #stpcon

Testers are slowly being given responsibilities outside testing. @tgtigger77 is quoting Bach’s future view of testing. #stpcon
