Speak Easy program

Reading Time: 2 minutes

TL;DR

This post is about my journey start with speak easy program.

During the CAST 2016 in Vancouver, I heard about speak easy program. That program helps you to compose your talk proposal for testing conference. It is voluntary based and created by Anne-Marie Charrett and Fiona Charles.

I applied in August last year.

On patient. When I asked my friend Zeljko Filipin how to make a good homebrew beer, he said: “To make a good beer, the most important part is patient”. With my third batch on the way, I found that it is true. Just to taste your beer, you need to wait for one month.

This month, I got speak easy feedback. I was patient because I knew that this is free volunteer based program.

After few emails exchanged with speak easy volunteer (I stated my time zone and most important testing topic which is at the moment Session Based Test Management) , I was assigned to Gil Zilberfeld.

He asked me a few questions to put me in software testing context, and we are set to go.

For start I need to pick three testing topics, which will be foundation for my future talk proposal.

Why I assigned for speak easy?

As when you want to learn some new framework or programming language, you start by reading and applying a book written by the expert from that domain. SpeakEasy will help me to get professional help from the domain of preparing and giving software testing talk.

Because I think that I have some valuable thoughts about software testing. My goal is to apply testing talk to permanent TestBash call for papers. TestBash is paid conference, and if I would be accepted, I own to participants to give my talk in the most professional manner. SpeakEasy will help me to do that.
