Testing In The Pub Episode 34 – Test Leadership With Anna Royzman

Welcome to Testing In The Pub Episode 34 – Test Leadership With Anna Royzman.

In this episode we talk to Anna about Test Leadership and what it means to her. What makes a test leader and how can we demonstrate leadership?

We also discuss who is really demonstrating leadership in the community at the moment and where you can learn more about test leadership.

Anna is the organiser of the Test Masters Academy and the latest conference is coming up as part of Reinventing Testers Week, 25th-29th Sep in NYC. It looks to have a great lineup and a great selection of training as well so do check it out.

Anna is also the founder of A Quality Leadership Institute and you can follow her on Twitter @QA_nna and follow Test Masters Academy @TestMastersAcad.


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).

Testing In The Pub Live From TestBash 2016 – Part 2

Welcome back to another Testing In The Pub, from TestBash 2016.

At TestBash

We’ve got a great episode for you today. We’re back with the second part of our series from TestBash 2016, where we sat down with John Stevenson and Jokin Aspiazu for a chat. You can hear us talk about the test community and how to keep it engaging, their experiences of TestBash, how they got into testing, and where testers can really add value in the development lifecycle.

Plus a brief history of tapas and why you can’t get into the disco 🙂

If you want to know more about John and Jokin and their approaches to testing then they both have blogs.

Hope you enjoy the new episode.
