The Northern Virginia Test Automation Interest Group holds monthly meetings, generally on Wednesday evenings, at Herndon-Reston area facilities.
6:30 - 7:00 Networking, food.
7:00 - 7:30 Each attendee introduces themselves and discuses their test automation interests/news/challenges/successes.
7:30 - 7:40 Announcements from attendees re job openings or re seeking work.
7:40 - 8:40 Presentation or Discussion Topic
8:40 - 9:00 Follow-on discussions
The meetings are participatory and discussion-oriented:
- Meetings often include informal discussion-oriented presentations.
- Meetings are technically oriented at times (and may include showing and discussing code). Example topics: unit testing, automation programming languages, tool specifics, vendor presentations, load testing, code coverage.
- Some meetings are less technical and more oriented to design/strategy/managment subjects related to test automation. Topic examples: choosing a tool, when is a project ready for test automation, open source vs COTS, build vs buy, ROI, how to find a great automation engineer, automation estimation, etc.
- It is expected that attendees will contribute actively to the discussons and be willing to discuss (in general terms, or, if possible, specific terms) past or current automation experiences, challenges, and successes.
