Part 2 of A Journey into the Modern Testing principles
Don't worry if you missed part 1, you will still get takeaways!
We have a bumper agenda as we have a visiting speaker in the area in Dave Christiansen. Dave is going to give us a short 20 talk titled "Why Devs Suck at Testing and How You Can Help Them"
Were then going to break, do some technical checks and cast with Newcastle, Glasgow and Seattle for part 2 of our conversation on the Modern Testing Principles.
We will end the night with the popular lean coffee, when we get feedback on these events its always about the community and discussion with the attendees. Lean Coffee is a great way of doing just this!

Dave Christiansen is a former tester and test manager who became a web app developer ten years ago. As a tester, Dave created a hands-on course on exploratory testing he has delivered many times in the US. As a developer, Dave has observed patterns in the way developers work that cause them to miss problems that are glaringly obvious the moment a tester gets their hands on the "finished" product. Dave will share these patterns and talk about things a tester can do to get better code out of developers on the first go-around.
Alan Page has been a software tester for over 25 years, and is currently the Director of Quality for Services (and self proclaimed Community Leader) at Unity Technologies. Previous to Unity, Alan spent 22 years at Microsoft working on projects spanning the company – including a two year position as Microsoft’s Director of Test Excellence.
Alan was the lead author of the book “How We Test Software at Microsoft”, contributed chapters for “Beautiful Testing”, and “Experiences of Test Automation: Case Studies of Software Test Automation”. His latest ebook (which may or may not be updated soon) is a collection of essays on test automation called “The A Word: Under the Covers of Test Automation”, and is available on leanpub .
