    Agile methodologies have become the dominant approach to software development, but what does that mean? How is it implemented and how does it affect us as testers?

    In this session, we look at Agile approaches to software development and how we can use the different testing activities we've learnt over the past nine sessions to create awesome test strategies and plans to help our teams.

    In past sessions we've discussed what skills, activities and tools we require to be successful in Software testing. However, what about getting the job in the first place? What should you expect in an interview for a software testing role? What if you are the one giving the interview? How do you ensure you find the right person?

    We will cover these questions, and more, in this session -  helping you become a successful interviewer and interviewee.

    Mentors, please ensure you indicate that you are coming as a mentor via the RSVP questionnaire.

    The Software Testing Clinic is a safe environment for anybody who wants
    to learn about software testing and enhance their testing skills. SWTC
    offers monthly evening sessions for anybody interested in the testing
    craft; they are run in an interactive way using whiteboard sessions,
    hands-on exercises and discussions with the whole group as well as in
    sub teams to deepen our understanding of software testing. You are led
    through the evening by a team of hosts, supported by more experienced
    testers who can use and enhance their mentoring skills.

    Please RSVP for this session on meet up.

    Over the course of 2018 and early 2019, we discussed what testing is, discovered the wonders of exploratory testing, collaborated on communication and testing requirements and tried out different testing automated and technical techniques. It was a fantastic season and to finish it off we have a special session for our students in the form of a 'Ask us anything' session.

    In this session, you can ask us and a group of mentors anything that we haven't covered that you want to, recap topics from previous sessions or generally just have a discussion about testing. So come join us for a session where the agenda is in your hands.

    Mentors, please ensure you indicate that you are coming as a mentor via the RSVP questionnaire.

    Arrive from 6pm
    The session kicks off at 6:30 with a break for food around 45 minutes-1 hour in to the session.
