Missed us last night? Join us in 3 weeks!

Whole Team Testing with +Claire Moss a.k.a. aclairefication

Thursday, July 17, Atlanta GA http://www.meetup.com/SoftwareTestingClub/events/189092812/
Claire Moss will lead us in a dry run of her Agile2014 presentation Whole Team Testing: Sometimes there just isn't enough testing time for all the testing we'd like to do as a team. For those testers stuck in a phased approach, testing can end up feeling like a bottleneck in the system, with testers constantly asking for more time or more help. Having experienced that team dynamic, I know that I can't do all of this testing alone and I wouldn't w...

This month's meetup incorporates some feedback from our retrospective: a talk followed by a social hour!

Topic: Exploring Explore It! - a book report and experience report on building an exploratory testing practice

Our speakers are +JoEllen Carter and her testing team at +VersionOne 

Speaker Bio: 
JoEllen Carter is an agile QA tester for VersionOne. JoEllen has more than seven years of experience defining the role of tester on agile teams. From her first exposure to agile methodologies, she’s been an inspired advocate of the value an experienced, collaborative tester brings to an agile team. She’s worked primarily on teams new to agile, transitioning from a traditional QA organization to highly effective agile teams. Her experience in software development and testing began in the highly regulated and QA-intensive nuclear power industry and now includes direct marketing donor management software, staffing software, e-commerce systems, and project management software. Her formal education includes a Bachelor’s in Mechanical Engineering and a Master of Science in Technical Communication. Her education in agile began with training by Jay Conne, and continues every day she spends on an agile team. 

Book: +Elisabeth Hendrickson +Elisabeth Hendrickson  's Explore It!: Reduce Risk and Increase Confidence with Exploratory Testing http://pragprog.com/book/ehxta/explore-it

(We'll see what I can work out for remote attendees...)

Location set for next week's Software Testing Club Atlanta meetup!

Software Testing Club Atlanta March meetup: Maybe We Don't Have To Test It with +Eric Jacobson 

RSVP on Meetup.com http://www.meetup.com/SoftwareTestingClub/events/168910352/
The March 2014 meetup of Software Testing Club Atlanta features our own Eric Jacobson’s “Maybe We Don’t Have to Test It” from STAREast 2013: Testers are taught they are responsible for all testing. Some even say “It’s not tested until I run the product myself.” Eric Jacobson believes this old school way of thinking can hurt a tester’s reputation and — even worse — may threaten the team’s success. Learning to recognize opportunities where you may...

Who would be up for a meetup to discuss ISO 29119 in late September?
I've seen a lot of blog posts and discussion about it lately!

Until programming languages and methods adopt something like Design-by-Contract (TM-Eiffel Software) as a part of their testing paradigm, then ANY suggested and debated standards will be quite arguable and resistant to standardization.

Bring also the tips and tricks you've found to be effective so that you can share your ideas with others who may benefit from them.

If you have attended any of our meetups so far, please join us this month for our retrospective. Jason Benton will lead us in reflecting on our experiments so far. We need your feedback!

We will also have a wonderful local speaker, Alex Kell:
"The Oracle is Fallible:  Recognizing, Understanding, and Evaluating the Assumptions that Testers Make"

Testers make assumptions all the time; some of them are good, some are bad, and some are forced upon us.  The trick is knowing when assumptions are being made and making sure using them is appropriate in a given context.  We'll discuss real-world examples of such assumptions and some tools and techniques to deal with them. 

Thanks to +VersionOne  for hosting us again!
