Test Automation Bazaar!

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.

Sponsors: Would your company like to sponsor the event? Check out the sponsors page and fill in the form to get started.

Tickets: On sale now.

Accommodation: Hotel Allandale is right next to the Norris Conference Center. There is a group rate of $119/night for a 1 bedroom suite. Phone them on (512)-452-9391 and say you’re attending the Watir & Test Automation Conference. If you’re interested in sharing a room, why not put your name on the Google doc spreadsheet?

Minesweeper Competition: don’t forget to check out the minesweeper challenge, full details here.
