Software QA & Testing Meetup – March 2015 Meetup Scheduled

Software QA & Testing Meetup

Attention: Ohio Testers

Our February meeting recently concluded with a good discussion and recap of “What I Learned at QA or the Highway 2015

Our Topic for March:  An Intro to Cucumber

The format is simple: bring your laptops. We will build a cucumber framework from scratch.  Here we will walk folks through the process from the ground up; creating a project, directories, gherkin scripts, and create some step definitions. Time permitting maybe even launch a browser and hit a web page.

Don’t forget to bring your laptop as this is meant to be an interactive and hands on experience for the evening where YOU build the framework.

For our Software & QA Testing Meetup, we follow a general format.  A backlog of discussion topics is kept that has been generated by our regular attenders and at end of our monthly meeting, a group of us will decide on a topic for the next meeting… or I will decide on the topic if something strikes me of interest.  From there, I will announce topic formally and do the scheduling on  Typically, we have have about three weeks to prepare for any given topic.

We follow a discussion based format for the entire evening.  I try to kick things off with a question or two and only try to step in when conversation begins to die down or when the conversation needs to be reigned in just a bit.  A good evening is one where I really don’t need to intervene too much and the discussion can flow back and forth between all participants.  It’s a successful night when all participants have the opportunity to have their voice heard, share their experiences, ask questions, solve problems and INTERACT with each other.
