Many thanks to all who attended the #ANZTBTest2017 conference on Friday 5 May 2017 at the InterContinental Wellington, New Zealand. It was a feature packed single day conference event including two conference streams, a collaboration hub, a crowd sourced Q&A wall, and a panel discussion.
The following interesting topics, aligned with our conference theme of “Testing for Tomorrow”, were presented on the day, one was even part presented by a virtual robot!
- Making the World a Better Place
- Test Management Survival Guide in the New World
- Rise of the Machine (Learning)
- The Future of Testing is Distributed
- Applying Machine Learning to Test Automation
- Testing Challenges in the Highly Interconnected World of IoT
- Computer Security Tips
- Getting Hired and Staying Employed
- Where is the Value in Testing?
- ISTQB Product Roadmap
All presentations are available on our website at http://www.anztb.org/downloads.php#ANZTBTest2017
Delegates enjoyed the opportunity to speak further with the presenters at our open space Collaboration Hub. The Collaboration Hub also contained hands on demonstrations of IoT devices and other fun activities related to testing.
This year’s conference also introduced a crowd sourced Q&A wall to allow all delegates to post questions, or to answer questions posted by other delegates. Delegates also had the opportunity to “up-vote” their favourite question and answers. This was a great success, with fantastic feedback from all involved. It also opened quite a bit of discussion and networking at the wall, with a lot of great ideas shared.
The questions with the highest votes on the Q&A wall were included in the afternoon panel discussion, with discussions continuing after the conference on our LinkedIn Group page: https://www.linkedin.com/groups/2260082
We are looking forward to bringing the ANZTB Test 2018 conference to Canberra on 1 June 2018 at the Hyatt Hotel. The theme for next year’s conference is “Tailoring Testing for Success”, and we have had another overwhelming response to our call for presenters. The conference panel are in the final stages of selecting the speakers, further details to follow shortly!
