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.
- I performed a Keynote, which I enjoyed:
- Slides : https://www.slideshare.net/eviltester/unconventional-influences
- Paper : https://www.slideshare.net/eviltester/unconventional-influences-paper
- Since I entitled the talk “Unconventional Influences” I tried to make the paper as unconventional as I could, so it covers the essence of the talk but not the material
- I don’t know if the conference recorded it, if they did then I’ll blog about it when I know
- I hosted a Tutorial with Simon Stewart (@shs96c, blog) called “Selenium Clinic”, it seemed to go well, and we won the Best Tutorial Award, so thanks to everyone who attended and provided such positive feedback.
- We released the source code to the tutorial on github, under Simon’s account. We have more in the code than we covered, we didn’t manage to really cover the page and domain object exercises in the tutorial
- code on github https://github.com/shs96c/selenium_clinic
- And I managed to make it onto next year’s Programme Committee (chaired by Michael Bolton) – terribly exciting to have a chance to help shape a conference that I first attended in 1995
I still have some follow on actions for Eurostar 2012 and will add more blog posts as they complete.
