First of all, thank you for joining us last night for the first meetup of the Hunt Bugs Club, and hopefully the last fully meta meeting about future meetings.
We decided to have the group meet on the 3rd Wednesday of each month starting on May 16, 2012. This has been submitted to the Tech.MN calendar.
Here’s the rundown of what we covered:
Venue: Clockwork Active Media Systems
Time: 7pm – 8:30pm
Networking / Introductions
There were 11 attendees to the initial Hunt Bugs Club meeting. Attendees were from:
- Digital River
- The Nerdery
- Quantum Retail
Attendee availability was evaluated, and Wednesday was chosen as the day of the week going forward to meet, with a frequency of once a month. The specific Wednesday will be established, and we will update the Tech.mn calendar.
Potential topics for content, such as ‘Lightning Talks’ were discussed. These topics will be turned into tags on the Hunt Bugs Club website. Thirty-five topics in total were recorded. From automated testing, browser compatibility to inter-department communication and release process management.
For the next meeting, several short presentations will be made based on the listed topics. Presenters and the topics they volunteered for:
Leaf – Bookmarklets
Breon – Run Test Run
Dez – Inter-department Communication
Countryman – how to write a good bug
Adam – QA in an agile environment
The opportunity to write for huntbugs.com was presented, and attendees were encouraged to follow up with Dez if there is interest in writing for the site.
Follow Up Tasks
I’ve created the Google Group and invited those that included their email and marked “Yes” on the Mailing List option. I also created a category on this site for most of the topics that were brainstormed last night.
