Melbourne SIGIST – 18 August 2016


It was a great turnout at the Melbourne SIGiST on Thursday 18 August 2016.  There was a lot of good feedback and we hope everybody got something out of the presentations.

The SIGiST was a great showcase of both ends of the testing spectrum. We had Tim Barker bringing 17 years of experience to the table highlighting the future of software testing in a way that everybody could understand and learn from. He gave a fantastic breakdown of BDD software engineering, not just for testing purposes, but highlighting overall SDLC practices to everybody in the audience to learn from and bring back to their workplace to improve their development process. All from a testing-centric point of view.

On the other hand we had Zarko, new to testing and working in a testing organisation’s graduate program. He provided a fresh viewpoint on technical testing. Moreso, giving the audience a realistic pathway in how to conquer the seemingly insurmountable learning curve for performance. As well as giving an insight in what makes a good performance tester, he also provided advice on the technical and interpersonal skills required to be successful, while also getting some genuine belly laughs along the way.

We’d like to say a big thank you and well done to both Tim and Zarko. Judging by the audience response and the questions afterwards both talks were a big hit and very well received.

ANZTB Test 2016 Conference Review


Our annual software testing conference was held in Melbourne at the Pullman on the Park on 27 May 2016. From the key note speakers to the vendor streams it is safe to say there was something for everyone this year.

The focus was on the Cloud, Mobile, Security and Agility so delegates came along ready to be inspired by a host of both local and international speakers. It was a great day and a fabulous opportunity for delegates to network with others working specifically within testing, as well as check out the vendor stands to see the latest products available to support testing.
