SWEWT 2 – Call for Content

Bring your stories

SWEWT 2 is being held on 05/11/2016 and the theme is…COACHING!!!

Testers need coaching, whether you are new to the craft, or whether you are experienced. We all have something to learn.

Are you coaching or have coached other testers?

Are you being coached, and want to understand more about what learning in a testing context is all about?

Are you new to testing and want to develop your study skills in a friendly, safe and open environment?

Are you an experienced practitioner, who has a career full of stories to tell?

It doesn’t matter what your background is. It doesn’t matter what flavour of testing you are in to, or how your projects are run.

We want you to bring them to SWEWT, share them and develop our craft that little bit more.

If you want to submit content to SWEWT2 then email theswewtteam@gmail.com by the 15th October 2016.

We ask that you submit an abstract and proposal for your talk (or other content) that should last no longer than 15-20 mins. If you have any interesting material to share alongside your proposal that might pique our interest then please include it.

Further, we ask that you produce a short piece of writing about your proposal, so that we can share it via the SWEWT blog, or via your own blog if you have one.

About SWEWT2

SWEWT2 will be held on the 5th November 2016, which is the weekend after EuroStar 2016 in Stockholm, so if you are international and fancy a visit, then please do apply.

This workshop will be held in the picturesque market town of Frome, Somerset, which is near the city of Bath. Frome offers a fantastic environment for the workshop. Frome has a very independent vibe, with a great atmosphere, interesting shops, pubs and other attractions.

The venue will be a local pub, called The Archangel, in The Navy Room. There will be refreshments during the day, and lunch. There may be a charge for the food and drink, however we are looking at funding options for the workshop.

The Archangel, Frome

Frome has a number of accommodation options, including a Premier Inn, Travelodge, several local B&B’s, as well as at the pubs nearby. It is served by its own train station, but the busier Westbury and Bath Spa stations are both close by. If travelling by car, Frome is situated on the A36 between Bath and Salisbury, and is accessible via the M4 and the A303.

We look forward to seeing you there.

I'm a software test, quality and security professional of 20 years. In the last few years I've been an independent consultant, but I have recently joined Microsoft, leading quality and testing on some complex projects. I love testing and all its wondrous variety. I like to help others become better testers by attending events, speaking, blogging and giving training. I'm also building on the training, coaching and learning I've picked up elsewhere, and bringing that into my teams. I enjoy running workshops and speaking, especially in the technical testing and security space. I’m also an advocate for mental health in the workplace and home. It’s an issue close to my heart, as it's something I have to manage in my own life every day. Hopefully, It'll make me a better tester too!
