Sydney SIGIST – 30 August 2016

We had an almost full house at the Sydney event this month.  We decided to experiment with a couple of different formats which received great feedback from the audience.

In the first session before networking we decided to look at Risk and its association with testing.  Some of the key points were around understanding Product risk and how this impacts on scope, coverage and prioritisation of testing.  We also looked at breadth vs depth of testing.  We then had a period of networking over drinks and nibbles.  Everyone talked to at least one person that they had never met before.

The second session was an open forum where the audience were encouraged to select topics that were going to help them in their day to day work environment.  Obviously regression testing is a challenge for all of us, as this consumed most of the time.  See the photo of the board below:
