- I hope to inspire others to start a testing meet-up in their local area (especially if there isn't an active one yet)
- If you have been to a testing meet-up, you may be curious as to what it's like "behind the scenes"
A few things to keep in mind when you read this:
- I work remotely - so didn't really have a community or a network here in Stockholm
- I was a co-founder for a testing meet-up in Auckland alongside Shirley Tricker, Erin Donnell and Jen Hurrell and helped run that meet-up for just under two years.
Why start a Testing Meet-up in Stockholm?
There weren't any active testing meet-ups at the time (around mid March 2016). While there were a few testing Meet-up groups there hadn't been any Meet-ups for 6 months (according to Meetup.com - and I really wanted to meet some people from testing in Stockholm.
