6th April: Testing Virtual Meetup - 'Modern Testing, do we all need to be SDIT?'

  • Monday, 6 April 2020
  • 07:00 PM - 08:30 PM

We are excited to announce the next of our iO Virtual Meetups, taking place on Monday 6th April at 7:00pm. This talk will be on Testing, discussing 'Modern Testing: Do we all need to be SDIT?'. Our guest speaker will be Callum Akehurst-Ryan, Senior Tester at Bloom & Wild.

​Callum will be diving into 'Modern Testing: Do we all need to be SDIT?' and how Manual / Exploratory testing skills are still needed in a DevOps & Modern Agile environment. He will be explaining what SDIT really is and looking at how SDIT have the skills for scripting and coding. In addition he will be discussing how you cannot neglect test skills and things like: Critical Thinking / heuristics / risk analysis which is needed to know *what* to test.

​Frequently we're seeing that the testing job market is asking for pure SDIT (Software Developer in Test) roles. Callum will be exploring if this is a good thing? What benefits does it give us? And how does testing (and manual testing) skills fit in?

There will be an opportunity at the end to raise any questions or queries you wish to discuss.
