The Testbash Manchester 2018 is the first ever Testbash I attended. And what can I say – my expectations were met. I was lucky that I received one of the Ministry of Testing scholarships for, what I‘m really greatful about. I heard a lot about the Testbashes and followed attendees from other ones on Twitter to learn about what was happening there. The Ministry of Testing community is just awesome and the Testbashes are a place where you can meet in person in a very welcoming and inclusive atmosphere. I learned a lot of things and saw lots of awesome speakers during this single track conference. The quality of the talks at Testbash Manchester was very high. One great talk/speaker after another. I think my favorite talks were „Jedi Mind Tricks for Testers“ and „The Tester‘s 3 Cs“. But now let‘s have a look at my sketchnotes I did of all the talks!
