In this mini series Beren draws a congruence between Kolb's learning styles and our testing processes.

Learning, Testing, Playing, Exploring , Experimenting. They are all almost synonyms of each other, yet quite different. I adapted these words to fit the learning patterns Kolb introduced to us and gave shape to a model that's better described as Kolb's Testing Styles.

Each of the learning styles have an inhere...

Security 101 will cover some of the key thinking, modelling, threats, and vulner...

In November 2015 we hosted our first TestBashNY where people from all over the world gathered to listen to these fabulous people speak.

Many thanks to Tellurium for enabling us to share these videos through their sponsorship.

In October 2015 we hosted our first TinyTestBash in Brighton.

TinyTestBash was designed to create a smaller and more intimate platform with a strong focus on sharing stories and talks from newer speakers. The atmosphere and talks totally rocked!

We are working on recording talks at some software testing meetups in some locations. We are starting with some of the meetups in Brighton (purely because that is where Rosie is based).

We would love to explore recording more meetups, in a quality way and host them freely on The Dojo. We have some ideas on how to make this happen. Please get in contact with us if you would like to collaborate on this.
