Next TEASIG webinar
Due to a simultaneous webinar taking place on the 21st November, the Gudrun Erickson webinar for TEASIG has been postponed until late February 2018.
Our next webinar will therefore be with Russell Whitehead and Felicity O’Dell on 19th December “Getting it right, getting it wrong: a tour of the LT123 testing principles”.
This webinar will discuss LT123’s list of ten principles for ‘good’ testing, sharing plenty of examples of successful and unsuccessful items and tasks. This promises to be a useful round-up for newcomers and experienced testers alike.
