The message is loud and clear: Learn to code or hit the road. Don't hesitate; automate!

The demand for technical skills has never been higher. It seems the days of the manual tester are over. How much truth is there to this? How do we truly need to adapt for the future? Is there a future for non-technical testers? What does that look like?

In this talk, Aaron will look at the current market demands, and compare that to what his vision for the future of testing is.

All welcome. The presentation will be followed by a networking session with drinks and nibbles provided by Assurity.


We wish to thank Assurity for sponsoring the refreshments and keeping this a free event.


TPN wishes to thank Westpac for providing the venue.
