Tomorrow (15 September) the British Computer Society will organize their Autumn Conference in London. The conference is organized by the SIGIST, the special interest group in Software Testing. We have an interesting line-up with a.o. talks on Automated test design (by Mark Harman), a software testing clinic in which young an new testers can get hands-on experience and get a feel on test skills that are needed. by Dan Ashby and Mark Winteringham. Neil Thomson will do a talk on Test Data. DevTestOps by John Stinson and John Karn will talk about team conflicts.
I am proud to offer a workshop on test progress reporting in Agile projects using subway mapping in which we will make our own one-page test progress report and learn how subway mapping can be used to put testing on the project management agenda.
I have to honor to close this inspiring day with a keynote in which I’ll search for de fundamentals in software testing and discus how they remain standing in a changing (read: more agile) world.
