Connect with fellow testers during This Week in Testing. Let's catch up on a voice-only chat to debrief what's been happening in the testing community this week.
Listen in like a radio show or put yourself forward to come up on stage to join the conversation. It's like Twitter Spaces but not on Twitter!
Simon Tomes (CommunityBoss) is your host and would love to chat with you. 🎙️🎧
Frequently Asked Questions
Is there a Code of Conduct for this event?
Absolutely. All Ministry of Testing events require participants to agree and adhere to this Code of Conduct. We create inclusive, friendly, safe and supportive environments for all, based on treating all individuals as good human beings.
How do I join in?
Register for the event above. View the "Join details" section and follow the link. You have to be logged into your MoT account to join.
Can I just listen in?
Sure. You'll automatically join as a listener and no one will be able to hear (or see) you. Your MoT profile picture and name will be displayed in the room. There is no pressure to join the stage to chat.
I have something to say, how do I join the stage?
Request to join the stage via the "Raise hand to get on stage" button. You should see a pop-up asking for you to give permission to all audio. The host will see that you've requested and will bring you onto the stage. You can then leave the stage whenever you like.
My audio doesn't work, what can I do?
We're aware that ad blockers have an adverse effect on allowing audio permissions. Turn off any ad blocker and try again. Feel free to let us know via the dedicated This Week in Testing chat channel on The Club.
What devices are supported?
All browsers with "ok" WebRTC support should be supported. Join via the latest versions of Chrome, Firefox, Edge, Safari, and Opera on macOS, iOS, Android and Windows.
Why no live captions?
Sorry, we totally understand how important live captions are. The technology we are using is still in development and currently doesn't support live captions. We've put in a feature request.
Can I also text chat whilst listening?
Not within the voice-only room. Head over to the dedicated This Week in Testing chat channel on The Club. Keep both windows open to follow along with the chat too. Alternatively, after joining the voice-only room, look for the button that says "Text chat on The Club about this discussion".
Is the session recorded?
No, not at this stage. We'll see if there's demand for recordings and consider it in the future. For now, join live so you can get involved and connect with fellow testers.
