It aims to encourage networking and bring like minded test managers together to discuss techniques, approaches and tools, disseminating good ideas within the industry.

The Workshop day, takes place on Tuesday the 26th at the conference centre at Balls Brothers, Minster Pavement and the short, intensive sessions are aimed to give testers a head start in each topic, covering such things as exploratory and innovative testing, SCRUM, open source tools, and Agile test management.

Entitled ‘Taking Control of Your Test Data’, the workshop will explore strategies and techniques that can be used to support QA teams with the creation, management and verification of test data.

The Summit day takes place at the IoD building, Pall Mall, and the session topics, voted on by TMF members, include Agile testing, regression testing, measuring team performance, Test-Driven Development, requirements and performance testing. George Wilson will be leading a session at 10am, entitled ‘Agile Test Automation – Can it be Done?’ He will explore how to define a test process to ensure application quality within an Agile environment.

Peter Hopley’s session is at 3.45pm. Entitled ‘Maximising your Test Automation Success’, the session will investigate what determines the short and long term success of test automation, what to automate and what to test manually and how you can manage the jump to automation in a seamless and painless manner.
