You can submit to EuroStar 2013

Eurostar Conferences have published “The EuroStar 2013 call for submissions”. You should answer that call and submit a presentation. Note: Do not read this as an official EuroStar conference blog post, consider this a communication just between you and me. I form part of the programme committee. So everything I write here comes from my perspective, and since we have a committee, my perspective will receive the balancing influences of Bart Broekman, Rikard Edgren, Maaret Pyhäjärvi and Michael Bolton.

What FREE Selenium WebDriver Webinars would you like to watch?

I want to present a series of free Webinars, and I’d like to cover topics that you want to see covered. So what would you like to know? I’ve created a YouTube video that explains it, but its pretty simple really. Visit unow.be/ssc/webinarq and let me know what you want covered. If you add your email address to the questionnaire then I’ll email you when the webinars are scheduled. And if you let me know what times you prefer then I’ll try and make them available at those times.

The Evil Tester's Guide to Technical Testing Webinar

My Webinar for Eurostar 2012 “The Evil Tester’s Guide to Technical Testing” generated a lot of questions, so I look forward to answering those in a future blog post. Eurostar Conferences have made the webinar available on youtube. I have uploaded the slides to SlideShare, and I pulled out some of the links below, so you have no excuse not to follow them up now.

Selenium Clinic, Best Tutorial, Eurostar 2012

At Eurostar 2012 Simon Stewart (@shs96c, blog) and I presented the “Selenium Clinic” a half day tutorial on WebDriver. We won the award for Best Tutorial. We prepared a shed load of material, just in case no-one asked any questions. Fortunately people did ask questions and the tutorial organised itself around the questions people had. We mostly managed to cover all the material we had. We didn’t get around to covering Page Object models in much depth and I don’t think we really covered domain models.

Eurostar 2012 Reflections

And now the reflection: I loved the testing keynotes – not a single duffer and everyone hit the conference theme ( I hope I can include mine in that statement) Alan Page, fully bearded up – any respectable Alan knows he should present himself thusly, encouraged building a web of ideas and seeking out new knowledge, and now that I have his gamer tag I can see when he beats me on Trials HD Simon Stewart, fully bearded up – as any respectable WebDriver speaker knows he should present himself, gave a good overview of the history of Selenium, with parts I didn’t know before.

Eurostar 2012 Outputs

I have almost recovered from Eurostar 2012. I expended a lot of effort in the preparation for it, and I think I can count it as investment rather than cost. I present, herein, the obvious, i.e. I can point at these, outputs: I created a webinar in preparation for Eurostar “Thinking Visually in Software Testing” As part of the Eurostar promotion I wrote an article in Professional Tester entitled “Abstraction in Action” dealing with some Test Automation abstraction principles.

The List' Unconventional Influences - Eurostar 2012

I have written up a model of my “Unconventional Influences” keynote from Eurostar 2012, it has the times when I think I should have mentioned certain things, and it has links to references that I hopefully referred to, at the time when I scheduled the reference. It may not make sense out of context, but if you attended then this may help you follow up on the sources of my influences.
