The Watir Team proudly presents the first ever Test Automation Bazaar: a two-day conference in Austin, Texas.
The focus of the conference will be on test automation in Ruby (not necessarily Watir), and specification by example: tying automated tests to business context.
When: Friday 23rd & Saturday 24th March 2012
Where: Norris Conference Center – Austin, Texas.
We are also planning some workshops for charity on Thursday the 22nd of March, and some social activities (bike riding and/or beer drinking) on Sunday the 25th March.
Format: We are using a variety of formats, see this post for details.
Call for Presenters: We are looking for short, relevant presentations that can run in a facilitated/interview format. You don’t need presentation experience: we are planning to conduct some mentoring/coaching for presenters – so stay tuned. If you’re interested, please register your interest here as soon as possible – you don’t need to spend a long time writing a lengthy proposal.
