Sheffield Test Gathering (ShefTest)

A regular meetup for people interested in or involved in software testing.
Come and meet other testers and others involved in software development.

  • Not everyone can make it to an evening event so let's do lunch!

    We're not having a 'proper' meetup this month due to a bit of a scheduling reshuffle (check out our June meetup listing for full details: So we're trying something a little bit different...

    If you haven't been able to get to an evening meetup yet, we'd love to see you. Or if you're a regular and just haven't been to Kommune yet, this is a great opportunity to try it out. There's something for everyone.

    No format for this one. Just turn up when you can. Grab yourself some food. Have a chat to other testers in the area. Brag about any cool stuff you're working on. Bring your challenges and hopefully get some answers. If it's popular then we'll look at making it a more regular thing with a better venue and some talks. Or we can just continue to get together now and again and have lunch.

    As always, if you'd like to sponsor or speak at a future event then pleas...

  • After a short hiatus of 6 weeks or so, we're back! We've made a lot of changes behind the scenes for future meetups so we're itching to get going again.

    Firstly we now have a permanent home! We're going to be hosted by the Sheffield Technology Parks from now on. They're doing a lot for tech meetups in Sheffield at the moment, so be sure to check them out and see if any of the other meetups they host peak your interest.

    Secondly we now have a permanent-ish date! We're going to be holding events on the first Wednesday of every month.

    Thirdly we have our first permanent sponsor (other than the Minstry of Testing of course). U Account has been a long time supporter of ShefTest and we're very happy to have them on board permently. They'll be providing us with a budget for food & drinks. They're currently recruiting for just about every role you can think of, so if you're interested check them out or collar one of the many ShefTest regulars who work there!
