Building a test community at the BBC

In large organisations, there may be many separate test teams and testers who aren’t even aware of each other, let alone able to share ideas and learn from each other. We will talk about how the BBC went about building a thriving test community to help bring together these testers, and all the benefits we have seen from it. We will give an insight into the kind of activities we run within this community, and the lessons we have learnt along the way.

Joanne has over a decade of test experience across industries including e-commerce, mobile and scientific instruments. Her mobile testing career started at Sony Ericsson Mobile Communications, and she is now working as Test Lead for the iPlayer Radio App at the BBC.
