NWEWT #3 – Innovation in Testing is on like Donkey Kong!

Once again, thanks to the Association For Software Testing the 3rd instalment of the North West Exploratory Workshop on Testing (NWEWT) is on!

This year NWEWT is focused on the ever changing future of software development & what innovative ideas in testing are needed in order prevent testing falling behind. So we are considering 3 questions:

  1. What do you think are the next big ideas in testing?
  2. What challenges to effective testing are you facing in your current role?
  3. What testing related experiments are you trying to keep up with the changes in software development?

Please check out the AST grant programme to see if & how they can help you!

Thanks as well to our micro sponsors Testagility!

NWEWT #2 – Growing Testers is a go!

So NWEWT #2 is this weekend – how did that happen?!

We’ve set a challenge to our guests this year; we’ve asked them to share their experiences of implementing their models they use to help grow testers.

This is the invite the guys received:

There isn’t a software testing degree yet, so the majority of software testers manage their training on-the-job.

  • As a Tester, how do you grow to keep up with the current trends in testing & development?
  • As someone responsible for leading Testers, how do you help Testers grow?

We want to hear your thoughts, experiments & top 5 ideas / models for growing Testers!

How would you respond?


Once again, we’re very grateful for the support from
