All has been quiet here on Rosie Land as I try to get my life in some kind of order. Who am I kidding, right? 5 kids, what chance have I got? Yeah, it’ll probably never happen as I always seem to be chasing my tail, but nothing like giving birth to a child to
I’m at StarWEST this week so thought I’d make the effort of taking some notes of some of the sessions/talks I’ve been attending. I don’t have the stamina to do it for all of them, but here’s my mindmap and some relevant photos from Mike and Jeanette’s talk. I was particularly interested in this one

During my limited time of running conferences I’ve come across some observations that I thought I would share. This is from experience of organising TestBash. People Advised Me Against It Before starting TestBash I spoke to several people about the idea. Many of them told me to be very careful. That conferences are very hard
Yeah, I’m running a software testing conference. It’s only our second one. It’s still nerve racking. There’s still alot of work to do, it doesn’t ‘just happen’ and we are still learning with each thing we do.
