Let’s Test is proud to announce that we’ve added two(!) Speak Easy (http://speaking-easy.com/) presentations to the program for Let’s Test 2016. Speak Easy is a mentoring program designed to improve diversity at technical conferences, with a special focus on increasing the number of female speakers.
The winning proposals were selected independently by the Speak Easy representatives:
Congratulations to Elisabeth Zagroba and Nicola Owen!
Elizabeth Zagroba is a context-driven software tester at Huge in Brooklyn. She’s tested innovative user interfaces for iOS and Android apps, responsive websites, content management systems, and streaming and on-demand audio. Before Huge, Elizabeth worked on the digital team at a public radio station in Manhattan. Elisabeth will be presenting “Testing When The World Is Watching“.
Nicola Owen is a Test Consultant with House of Test in Sweden, originally from Auckland, New Zealand. After studying Economics and German at university she decided to delve into the world of testing and hasn’t looked back since. She’s well involved in the testing community as a co-instructor of the BBST Foundations courses and a frequent meet-up attendee. When she’s not at work you’ll find her watching cooking shows, making cookies or running as she listens to dance music. Nicola blogs about software testing at nickytests.blogspot.com. Follow her on Twitter @NicolaO55. Nicola will be presenting “The Art of Picking Your battles“.
