First MMTMD Complete!

Thank you to all that attended the first ever Mid-Michigan Testers Meet Down and made it a success!

We had 5 great Lightning Talks:

  1. Phil Kirkham (@pkirkham) with Value – And Cost – Of A Good Tester
  2. Erik Davis (@erikld) on Starting a User’s Group (Which I haven’t really yet.)
  3. Jess Lancaster with Testing in Education
  4. Wade Stevens (@gelgamek) on Lean Defect Reporting
  5. Clint Hoagland (@vsComputer) with From Waterfragile Toward Agile: Lessons Learned On An Evolving Team

And then a game of Battleship with Matt Heusser (@mheusser), giving us all something to think about with regards to the cost vs. benefit of automation.

Special thanks go out to TechSmith (@TechSmith, http://www.techsmith.com) for their great volunteers, the use of their awesome space, and of course the never-ending beverages available.

Thanks also go to Association for Software Testing (@AST_Newshttp://www.associationforsoftwaretesting.org/) for sponsoring the event and providing for the food.
