WTT-01: Trello-boration

Date: Jan. 24th, 2015
Time: 1pm EST-3pm EST (as well as before and after – see details)
Facilitator: Albert Gareev

Come join us for the opening of a new chapter in WT family – Weekend Testing Toronto.

Rapid and elegant organization of session elements – help, instructions, charters, bug reports – has always been a major problem. While Skype chat is a good real-time communication tool, flat logs weren’t something suitable as showcasing and learning materials.

Making it to the session window has been a problem as well. Many had to miss sessions they were interested in; had no chance to contribute if Skype wasn’t available at the time.

With introduction of Trello, we’re planning to address both of the problems while retaining Skype chat for discussions during the session.
Trello cards are highly visible (you can tweet and link any public), have flexible structure (quickly add/remove checklists, discussions, voting, links, attachments, images,..), can be instantly cloned and moved, and offer an excellent medium for self-organizing WT sessions.
Trello boards (collections of cards) allow stretching of collaboration and communication beyond the session chat window. Now discussions and contributions can start pre-session and continue afterwards.

Hope to see you all there!
