Software Testing & Startups Talk in Dublin and Belfast

If anyone is interested there will be a softtest event this month (May) in Dublin and Belfast. I am giving a talk on software testing and startups.

Here’s the abstract

Software Testing in the world of Start Ups

This presentation offers a glimpse into software testing in the world of startups. It looks at the constraints and benefits facing software testers in this unique environment. It examines what it takes to be a software tester in a startup.

It will also be a bit of a myth buster session, looking at some of the myths around testing in startups. It closes by asking are we as a software testing industry doing enough to help startups improve their software.

Dublin Software Testing Group

Online networks are great for sharing knowledge and meeting fellow testers. In particular, I am a fan of  the software testing club . However, even better is a face to face meet.

Thats why I’m setting up a Dublin monthly software testers group. The aim is to meetup and talk about, well anything you fancy. To quote a member: “a get together to give out about our unfeeling brethern in the rest of the IT world and a few pints for good measure. What more could you ask for?
