The Defectives is a Testing focused community for the UK. We host events where teams of software testers work (or compete) with each other in a variety of fun and innovative ways.The Defectives community aims to share testing knowledge and experience, help you learn and develop testing skills and build awareness of industry techniques from guest speakers.Anyone with an interest in testing can become a Defective. You could be a professional tester who wants to learn some new testing skills, a project manager who wants to find out what testing is all about or someone looking to meet new testers. Many organisations field teams, bringing a competitive edge to the events and enabling the fun and celebrations (or commiserations!) to carry on after the event.All Defectives events are free to attend as well as giving you a chance to win prizes.We hope these events will enable you to have fun testing, outside of work place pressures, in a relaxed and collaborative environment. It's also a great chance to catch up with colleagues and meet some new testing gurus.Join our LinkedIn group to take part in the discussion today.
