Q & A with Angie Jones @ Ministry of Testing - Boston, Tuesday, July 11, 2017

Have you ever been to a film festival where after a film screening the director comes out for a Q & A session? Imagine if we did that with someone from the automated testing lecture circuit? 

Last night, members of the Ministry of Testing - Boston gathered together at Cengage Learning to watch a lecture of automated testing, followed by a live Q & A session by the lecturer.  The lecture for the evening? "The Build that Cried Broken".

Yesterday, we all gathered at the offices of Cengage Learning, a ten minute walk from South Station, down on 10 Channel Center. Look for the brick building with Cengage's logo on the side.

This way to the Ministry of Testing - Boston Meetup!

Waiting in the lobby to let non-Cengage employees in. 
Cengage Learning was not just our host, but they were our sponsor for the evening, too, graciously providing pizza. 

Before the Meetup, we gave away swag given to us by our sponsors, SauceLabs and SmartBear!

What I found amusing? Eran Kinsbruner, who spoke to us last month on his book tour for his Digital Quality Handbook and interviewed Angie in his book was one of the attendees! 

A hot item? Black Sauce Labs T-Shirts with their logo, testAllTheThings() emblazoned on it!
The shirts went fast!

Thank you Sauce Labs!
