Do you want a flake with that?

Murray Steele:

Flaky tests are awful, in this talk we'll explore why tests flake and look at some techniques and tools you can use to discover why your tests are flaking.

What the Chernobyl disaster can teach us about incident response

Frederick Cheung says:

What does the worst nuclear disaster ever have in common with a web application being down? On the face of it, vanishingly little, but the incredible series of events before, during and after the disaster have plenty of insights to teach us about more mundane situations

Talks needed!

You, maybe?

We still have room for more talks, get in touch to volunteer!


When the talks come to an end we'll decamp to a local pub for some food, some drinks and some chat with your fellow attendees.

Of course, even though this is the socialising part and seems more informal, please remember that still we consider it to be a part of the meeting and covered by our code of conduct.

Venue & Registration

Prior to attending you should familiarise yourself with our README paying close attention to the code of conduct which applies to all attendees.

Secure your place

Hopefully you all remember that physical meetings involve finite space and so to be guaranteed entry you need to register via ticket tailor.

We are trialling a new ticketing platform, Ticket Tailor. Do let us know how you find the user flow on it.

The venue has a hard limit of 150 people. Even with such a high number, if you register and realise you can't come, please use ticket tailor to give up your ticket so someone else can come in your place. We might be able to let in people on the night who haven't registered, but we can't guarantee it.
