Event description

Description

The first green shoots of spring are appearing, the long painful trudge to January payday is now a distant memory, and MoT Peterborough has emerged from a (slightly longer than planned) hibernation - WE'RE BACK!

On the 21st March the BGL Group will be hosting us again for an evening of test chat, something to eat, and some great talks from a couple of cracking speakers. Speaking of...

STEVE WOODFORD - A BRIEF HISTORY OF QUALITY

Steve will be talking about why we practice quality the way we do and how it is all about to change - we'll look at how we've got to today’s quality practices and the problems we have faced as our industry as matured. We'll then look at the new tech that will hit us in the next 18 months (essentially AI based non-deterministic systems) and the threat that, without further change, our current QA practices will fail very quickly.

SAMUEL LEWIS - TESTING ATM's

Ever walked up to an ATM and thought…I wonder how that works? No? Fair enough. It’s actually more interesting than you might think. In the world of software testing, the test effort increases exponentially the greater the financial risk associated with your feature. You don’t get much more risky than a standalone device loaded with cash. In my presentation I'll give you a behind the scenes look at what makes these machines work. I'll share two examples of projects I worked on that had very different outcomes and what impact the test approach had on them. If you make it to the end without sleeping, there is a nice anecdote about the Brazilian mafia too!

It's all lined up to be a great night - hope to see you there!

If you are interested in speaking at one of our events, sharing a workshop that you've put together, or would even like to sponsor/host one of our meetups in the future, please grab me on the night for a chat :)

The Ministry of Testing exists to advance the software testing industry in a fun, safe, professional and forward thinking way.

Our meetups exist as a way to bring people together to talk and learn about good and authentic testing. We encourage everyone who is interested in making better software products to come along and participate.
