London Tester Gathering Workshops

Next week, I'll be taking part in the London Tester Gathering Workshops at SkillsMatter. I'll be giving a 4 hours workshop on JavaScript aimed at software testers on Thursday. Inspired by the workshop, I am working on a JavaScript manual for testers (JavaScript4Testers) that will be available soon. The manual will serve as a guide along the workshop and in the future it might become a book, because my friend Tony Bruce is now co-authoring it with me, which is very exciting. The manual contains already some brief sections on the JavaScript language and then it addresses testing techniques, debugging, tools and some tips on performance and security. If you think this manual is looking interesting, please go to its site and write down your name an email, that will encourage us even more.

Like all my workshops, it will be a hands-on session with very little theory and lots of practice. That is how I enjoy running workshops and the way people learn more.

I am a developer, am not a tester. In fact I am terrible at catching defects. But I love working together with testers because I like their vision and their collaboration spirit. Working together is very nice and effective. And I learn techniques on how to break the software by observing them. So I am looking forward to meeting all the participants in what is going to be a great experience. The workshop's atmosphere at SkillsMatter is very friendly, we'll have plenty of time to chat, share experiences, learn and enjoy. This is the Twitter hashtag for this edition: #ltgw2013

I land in London on Wednesday 16 afternoon. To warm up and meet  friends, a bunch of developers will meet in this pub to practice coding (a code kata) at 7pm. Feel free to join us.

See you next week in London 😀
