Testers' Island Discs Ep21 - Matthew Bretten
Our latest castaway is Matthew Bretten, joining us to discuss his upcoming adventure in presenting a talk titled "You Can Become A Toolsmith Too" at the inaugural Test.bash(); Manchester.
Continuing the discussion from the previous episode about toolsmiths, Matt shares examples of how testers can break into creating valuable tooling, finding developer allies, and there's some meta-discussion about preparing and running technical workshops.
Matt's song selections are linked to different pivotal moments of his life, touching upon his favourite live artists, the films that he watched growing up, video games, and the Manchester musician with a connection to Matt's grandmother.
