A Sense of Community

I won't be attending Testbash Brighton this year. It'll be the first Brighton one I've missed since they started in 2013. I encourage anyone who can get to a Testbash to do so, purely for the number of amazing people you get to meet. Below is a list of those people I have met over 5 Testbashes (4 Brighton and 1 Manchester). I hope this shows the value of these conferences and gets across just how much fun they are and why I'm saddened by not being at Brighton this year.

Rosie Sherry
Danny Dainton
Dan Ashby
Mark Tomlinson
Richard Bradshaw
Heather Reid
Rosie Hamilton
Claire Reckless
James Christie
Vernon Richards
Abby Bangser
Martin Hynie
Ioana Serban

Paul Berry
Rob Lambert
Adam Knight

This is obviously not a complete list. I do tend to get a bit... far from sober at these events, so if I have met you and your name is not on here, I'm blaming loud venues and nice beers for your name not appearing.

See you in Manchester?
