Would you like to develop more reliable software that delivers on all its requirements? Want to learn how to improve your testing so that no more bugs slip through? Maybe you’re eager to hear tips and tricks from some of the top minds in testing?
Join us at the the London Tester Gathering Workshops on October 16-17th!
Great minds on stage
This year's London Tester Gathering will welcome Tony Bruce, Peter Houghton, Carlos Ble, Jenny Mulholland, Stephen Janaway, John Stevenson, Richard Bradshaw, Nigel Stock and Rob Fahey.
Their insights and practical sessions will help you design software that’s on time, on budget, and satisfies your clients’ needs - you’ll soon be seeing the benefit after advancing your skills at this in-depth event. These are advantages you can’t get in the manual!
On top of all of this, you’ll be able to enjoy learning new things with a hundred other testers, so you can share ideas, hear their perspectives, and find new solutions to your problems; you could even discover new potential business partners!
Sounds exciting? Then get your ticket today! If you would like to come along with your team, give us a call on 0207 183 9040 and we'll be able to give you group discounts.

About the speakers...
Carlos started using computers at 6, when his father bought a PC with the Intel 8086 and some books on the Basic programming language. Since then, he has been learning how machines can be used to build a better world.
He started earning money by writing software back in 2000. In 2008 Carlos started using TDD for pretty much every piece of software he needed to write. In 2010 he published the first book on TDD in the Spanish language. In the last three years he has been training developers in several countries, and writing code with them. Apart from that, he has been investing his time and money in several web start-ups, always applying what he teaches to his own crafted software.
Jenny Mulholland started her career as a developer in 2006, before discovering her true passion lay in software testing.
As Test Lead at Softwire she is fortunate enough to be involved with a broad spectrum of testing from web to mobile, functional to non-functional, manual to automated. She is an advocate of Rapid Software Testing and enjoys collaborating with others to explore new development and testing techniques and make better software.
Want to take part in a hands-on workshop and get an overview of mobile testing? Stephen Janaway will explain some of the common mistakes that are made when starting to test mobile, and will give you the opportunity to put into practice what you learn straight away.
We are increasingly moving towards mobile devices to fulfil our day-to-day computing needs. More smartphones are sold than PCs but many people are unclear on what changes to test strategies are needed when working with mobile.
We'll spend a majority of the session testing a mobile application across a variety of platforms, and reporting the results in real time to the rest of the group. All you need to bring along is an open mind and as many mobile devices as you can get your hands-on.

How often have you found yourself stuck for ideas or thinking "why am I running tests", whilst testing? Have you found yourself repeating the same type of test ideas again and again? Do you find it difficult to explain your reasoning to others or to be able challenge what someone is saying? If this is the case then this workshop is for you.
This workshop will provide you with a set of tools that you can take back and implement straight away in your testing profession as well as learning skills for your everyday life, by using interactive creativity, critical thinking games, and easy to remember techniques.
The focus is on freeing up your mind to allow creative ideas to flow and then re-evaluating those ideas using critical thinking approaches. These are the concepts that you will take back with you to use in your daily working environment.
If that is not enough to convince you, then how does the idea of getting some freebies to take away with you help?
You can read about these concepts in more detail on John's blog.
