How do you organise an annual event in 2020? This question became increasingly prominent as the annual Testersuite fan day approached. As a developer of a SaaS tool, the answer was quickly found. The annual Testersuite fan day had to take place online.
An online session with all Testersuite fans proved to be the best alternative. Most Testersuite fans are test-savvy enough to talk at length about software testing. But how do you keep everyone interested for two and a half hours? The solution was a mix of interesting topics larded with a cliffhanger for the die-hards...
The chosen format proved to be a great success! In an interview, Testersuite product-owner Frank shed light on the impact of the strange year 2020 on the organisation and the application. Frank then gave a glimpse of the developments within the Testersuite application for 2021.
The Testersuite team likes to listen to the Testersuite fans. Therefore, the possibility was offered to vote on developments and functionalities within the Testersuite application. The participants of the fan day made optimal use of this opportunity. Because Testersuite has a two-weekly update cycle, new functionalities and technical adjustments are introduced on a regular basis.
Those who know Rik Marselis, know that you can safely characterise him as an authority within the testing profession. It is therefore not surprising that Rik managed to captivate the Testersuite fans for an hour with his presentation on "Quality for DevOps Teams". In a passionate speech, Rik told about the movement towards high performance IT-delivery. Think of Scrum and DevOps. How do you create IT systems in new ways and how do you guarantee the quality?
The fact that Testersuite fans are loyal was demonstrated by the fact that the majority of those present remained online until the very last moment. This was not least thanks to the cliffhanger "a giveaway is for die hards only". In a playful manner, the Testersuite fans were given the opportunity to obtain a unique Testersuite relic. What is this relic? Tja....a giveaway is for die hards only...
We thank all Testersuite fans for their presence! Hopefully the Testersuite fan day will be back next year. Stay safe and keep on happy testing!
The Testersuite Team.
