Test Automation: May contain side effects
Amy Phillips

Teams switching to Agile and DevOps practices place increasing emphasis on fast-feedback. We’re aware that batching up large changes can increase the risk and there’s growing demand for repeatable, and reliable, build, test, and release pipelines.
But it isn’t always plan sailing! In this talk we’ll explore the challenges of building and maintaining test suites and take a look at some of the side-effects that can emerge from an automation-heavy test approach. Expect real life survival stories and some deep questioning of how we should respond. You’ll also learn some fundamental principles that you can apply to your own test approach to avoid automating yourself in.

Mobile Addiction
Hawazine Haouat

Mobile/game addiction is a reality. As mobile developer I feel concerned by this problematic. Addiction to phone can cause different ranges of issues from miscommunications, anxiety.. to mental health issues. Let’s see together what could causes these issues and how we could address them.

Glossophobia and how to beat it
Aaron Randall

75% of us suffer from Glossophobia – a fear of public speaking. I’m going to share some tips to reduce your fear of presenting, increase your confidence, and make your talks more memorable & engaging.

Social: King Charles I – 55-57 Northdown St, Kings Cross, London N1 9BL

We understand that some people have other commitments, and cannot spend the whole evening with us. Because of this we start early, try to run very close to time, and we do not take questions after the talks. This allows everyone to benefit from the main part of the evening, and then, if you are able, you can join us after for the social where typically some, if not all, of the speakers will be on hand.
