Meetup and Software Testing Clinic Sponsorship
What are Meetups and Software Testing Clinics?
Ministry of Testing currently works closely with the community and the Software Testing Clinic to provide valuable and free events to the community. We believe these are extremely important to the growth of the software testing industry and we are seeking ways for this to become more sustainable.
The number of MoT Meetups and Software Testing Clinics that run are on the up. We are seeking the support of organisations to help us with the growth and to allow us to invest more time and resources into growing this valuable resource.
At its core, Meetups and Clinics are open and free to attend. Ministry of Testing currently subsidises many costs, but as they grow we are finding that we would be able to do so much more if we had the support of some companies.
What are we looking for?
Running any event is hard, lacking resources makes it even harder. We have the support from people and the community. We are looking to invest time and money into:
- Supporting our meetups with their expenses – venue, food, speaker costs
- Investing in and supporting a diverse community to participate and speak – we have a huge community that we reach out to, we need to be spending more time supporting them.
- Investing into creating great, comprehensive and free learning experiences.
As of July 2017, we have 22 Meetup locations and 2 Software Testing Clinic locations. Software Testing Clinics will be expanding in 2018 and take significant resources to get off the ground.
