Tweet Bits from #TestBash 2015

TweetBitsLogo

One thing that I really enjoy doing to keep up with the testing community is reading over Tweets after major testing conferences.

#Testbash 2015 looked like an incredible event based on the posts and slides that I read over.

I thought I would save some of you time and list out some of my favorite Tweets that I read from the conference.  In true Twitter fashion, posts below are from latest to earliest.

While this post is long, I hope you enjoy reading over the list as much as I did.  There are some great nuggets of information.   I am curious to know what some of your favorite posts might be!

Thank you to all the testers that took the time to live tweet at the event.

Code Mash 2015

CodeMash 2015 just finished up and while being known as a Developer Conference, there are a number of tracks that cover aspects of testing as well.

Here is the conference schedule to get an idea of the speaking tracks and sessions.

I took several minutes this Saturday afternoon and sifted through the #codemash Twitter feed of several thousand posts looking for references that had to do with testing.

Below you will find the majority of the references that I could find on the topic.

Thank you to those would took the time to live Tweet at the event.

#starwest Use servant leadership outside of #agile projects to drive success within your organization

Jeffery Payne ‏@jefferyepayne
#starwest everybody deserves to be managed!

Jeffery Payne ‏@jefferyepayne
#starwest One great way to improve your test organization and motivate staff is to cross train people so they learn new things

Jon Bach ‏@jbtestpilot
I disagree that software isn’t “done” if there are bugs. Why? The biz decides (as customer proxy) what bugs are acceptable. #starwest

Jon Bach ‏@jbtestpilot
“Everything coming up roses” is not a good thing if what you planted was vegetables. #starwest

Jeffery Payne ‏@jefferyepayne
#starwest the definition of Done MUST include testing!  In #agile there is not such thing as ‘developer done’

TweetBits from STPCon – Day 1

I was unable to make it to New Orleans this year for #STPCon.  Here are the more interesting Tweets that I saw from the first day of the conference.

Things started out fast and furious in the morning during the keynote, but died down as the day went on.  Regardless of the decline of activity, there were still some good posts well worth tracking.  Looking forward to seeing what Day 2 has as well.
