Onto the conference day! I woke up bright and early to head to the venue, Münchner Künstlerhaus in the heart of Munich. The event was sold out and I was ready to have a meeting of the minds with some of the community's brightest talents.
What an amazing few days it has been in Munich. This was my first time attending a TestBash event and it was even more special that I got to experience it in Germany, sampling some new culture along the way.
Going back to one of my first blog posts, I wrote about what I thought testing is and what it means to test. You will be able to get a fairly good idea of what my principles are but I have never written them down clearly for people to understand my approach to testing software.
In January this year I made a commitment to myself to get more involved in the testing community and to start helping others within my organisation understand what qualities testers can bring to a team other than "checking stuff works".
Today, I was involved with a feature roll out where I work. The use of feature toggles meant we could configure functionality at a moments notice. Anyway, we discovered a potential problem while monitoring transactional data. No harm, no fuss right? Switch off, regroup and utilise what we have learned from this activity.
I recently found myself retweeting a tweet by Alan Page on Twitter which struck a chord with me. It led to some interesting discussions and misunderstanding as to what point I was attempting to make. I tried to explain my reasoning but the micro-blogging platform didnt prove to be a useful platform to air these views so I have decided to get my thoughts down in a blog post.
The World Wide Web was built for everyone. That being said, it is not always accessible to everyone. A large number of websites still have limitations that prevent people from experiencing them as intended. This blog will explore the what, why and how of accessibility to inform and educate how we can make the web a place where everyone is welcome.
