Automation week is a week focused on problem-based learning. Those problems are automation challenges and sessions where you get to ask experts for help with your automation problems.
All these challenges are part of Automation Week, a week-long initiative by the Ministry of Testing to get you all hands on with new tools within software testing. During Automation Week there will be 99-min workshops, Round Tables, Roleplay Talks, panels and experience reports of solving these challenges.
These challenges are open to everyone and we encourage you to share your experience. Start doing them now, so you have experiences and solutions to share from the 26th October. There are no restrictions on what tooling you can use to solve these challenges, in fact the more the better!
Share Your Experience
During Test.bash();, our automation focused conference on Thursday, 29th October, we’ll be inviting people to share their experience reports of completing a challenge. If you’d like to appear during the conference and share your experience please complete this form and let us know which challenge you’ve solved and some high level insight into your experience. Such as the tools you used.
Experience reports for these challenges will be done live on Thursday, 29th October sometime between 9am - 9pm UK time. Specific times slots will appear soon.
Not everyone will get to present, I’ll be picking experience reports to ensure we have diversity of tools and voices. Reports will be a max of 20 minutes, and you’ll be paid £100 for your time.
You can submit as many experience reports as you like, increase your chances of getting selected
The deadline to submit your report is Sunday 25th October. You will then be contacted on Monday 26th October to confirm a slot for the 29th October at Test.bash(‘Online’);
