The event was kicked off with a welcome note from Mr. Anand Mahadevan, QA Manager of Collabnet.
Mr. Anand emphasized and encouraged the importance of such meetups.
The theme for TMM3 was ‘Mobile Testing’ .
The first speaker for the event was Kavitha Ramakrishnan from Virtusa who gave insights on Mobile Testing. This talk was followed by the presentation on ‘Bluetooth Mobile Testing’ by Raja. The last presentation was on ‘Mobile Computing and Test Automation’ by Anand Sathiyaseelan from AVA Corp.
The audience got good information pertaining to various concepts in Mobile Testing.
The highlight of the event was the presence of Pradeep Soundararajan and Ajay Balamurugadas.
The thoughts put forth by both of them made the session a very interactive one and the audience just loved it.
The Chennai testers also had the privilege of having Parvesh from the ISTQB Board who was present to address the clarifications regarding the ISTQB Certification.
The ‘Problem on the Table’ session had the following problems
– Why Selenium is getting increasing popularity compared to QTP
– What is the method to automate the different graphs appearing in a report
The audience helped to address the above problems and the problem owners seemed to be benefitted a lot out of it.
Apart from the ‘Problem on the Table’ session, we had an Open House. The audience were thrilled to have Pradeep Soundararajan and Ajay Balamurugadas in the meet. They were inquisitive to ask them a few questions. Pradeep Soundararajan and Ajay Balamurugadas willingly answered them.
The TMM event seems to gain increasing popularity since the crowd was larger in number compared to the earlier Meet Up. The testers are very much awaiting to be present in the next Meet Up. This was very much evident when one person asked the timeline where in the tickets for the next event would be available for booking.
With this the event came to end followed by a fabulous lunch.
