Testing In The Pub Episode 41 – At UKStar

Welcome back to another Testing In The Pub – At UKStar.

Me and Dan were lucky enough to be selected to speak at the first UKStar conference in London. Dan talked about setting up the software clinic and I talked about the view of testing from outside of the testing industry.

But more importantly we were in the same place for once, and able to record a Testing In The Pub! And here it is – a simple chat about testing and being technical.

Hope you enjoy it.

In this episode we talk about the future of testing and community. Listen to us and special guests talk about where we think testing is heading and why.

We also talk about why we started Testing In The Pub and why starting a podcast or any other sort of community activity is extremely personally rewarding, as well as being an important part of what keeps the testing community as vibrant and useful as it is.

Have a listen and hopefully we’ll you want to do the same.

Testing In The Pub Episode 32 – Intentional Learning

Welcome back to another Testing In The Pub, this time about Intentional Learning.

In this episode Dan talks to Claire Moss, and towards the end of the episode Emma Armstrong, about learning, learning styles and hints and tips on how to learn.

Worth mentioning that the audio on this episode is not great – after about 10 minutes there’s a strange clicking sound that we’ve been unable to remove in the edit. We did think about not publishing the episode but there’s so much useful information and interesting discussion that we’ve decide to post it ‘as is’.

Hope you enjoy it and can ignore the clicks.

Our thanks to Claire and Emma for taking part. You can follow them both on Twitter (@clairefication and @emmaatester).

At TestBash 2016 – Part 1

Here at Testing In The Pub we love TestBash and we were lucky enough to make it to the excellent TestBash conference in Brighton this month. It’s always a great day out (or a week away if you go for the tutorials, pre conference meet-ups, post conference meet-ups and all the general social events). There’s always a good mix of talks and being single track then there’s no difficult decisions on who to see.

While we were there we recorded a couple of podcasts and here comes the first one. In this one we sat down in a break with Chris George, Paul Coletti and Zach Borrelli to talk about TestBash, testing and to reflect on the presentations that we had seen.

Look out for part 2, an interview with John Stevenson and Jokin Aspiazu coming soon.
