    Hello everyone!

    I’m bringing great news to you! Test Lab will happen (;
    We’re of with a bumpy start but steadily it’s taking the shape that we believe you’d enjoy a great deal.

    We are planning to have a variety of activities and challenges (testing related, obviously) (;
    They will be announced as soon we’re clear on when we will have which focus sessions!

    Focus session – will be a half a day event where most of activities will be grouped around specific topics.

    As an example/teaser :
    We are proud to announce that there will be sessions dedicated to:

    • Mobile testing (the conference theme is there for a reason, right?!)
    • Security testing
    • Doodling, Sketching, other kinds of note taking (;
    • and more (;

    We’re still ironing out the when and what in more details (; yet we believe it’s coming together nicely πŸ™‚

    Things we know for sure:

    • The Master Minions at the attendee disposal are – Adina and me πŸ™‚
    • The rest of the Lest Lab Crew (Regular minions) will be announced as soon as we’re sure that everyone that is contacted, can make it πŸ˜‰

    To have fun at lab YOU SHOULD:

    • Have a sufficient level of curiosity
    • bring your own laptop (security)
    • bring your smart phone(we have a surprise (; )
    • and a pair of headphones won ‘t hurt ether :p

    There will be some laptops and smartphones, yet – lets face it – nothing beat testing from a device that you know speaks to you while listening to the every command you are giving to it πŸ˜‰
    As for the headphones – there will be challenges around them – as well as – we do know that sometimes it could get too loud to focus πŸ˜‰ Music of your choice or active noise canceling does magic then πŸ˜‰

    We’re also looking for sponsors – in case you know some willing to help – let us now πŸ˜‰

    Questions?! :p

    Thank you for a most excellent test lab this year.

    1. I enjoyed it, a lot.
    2. Yes. Even though I got stuck on one of the wooden puzzles and probably spent more time with it than was gfood for me.
    3. Yes. I attended the note taking session and it was interesting and a good learning experience.
    4. It would be great if the challanges/puzzles were a little clearer. And I would love more short sessions in the lab.
    5. Absolutely.
