Testing In The Pub Episode 1 – Reviewing the Conferences
Testing In The Pub is a regular software testing podcast, brought to you by Stephen Janaway and Dan Ashby. We attended a number of software testing conferences in 2013, including TestBash, Agile Testing Days, London Tester Gathering Workshops and EuroSTAR. In this podcast we review them, and talk more about our favourites.
