The following Community Micro-Events are available for you to run, with support, platform and promotion from Team Ministry of Testing.


Register your interest to run one or many. For any questions contact simon@ministryoftesting.com.

Ministry of Testing Twitter Space Topic Exploration

An audio-only 45 to 60-minute max Twitter Space from the MoT Twitter Account to chat about any topic related to testing. A topic is set in advance. It could take the shape of a conversation started by one or two people or an Ask Me Anything with one or two people. Run any time on any day Monday to Thursday. 


Previous Twitter Spaces have included a discussion on Regression Testing, an AMA on Test Leadership, a discussion on how to get into blogging, advice on speaking at conferences and much more! It's up to you to select a topic to lead on or ask Team MoT to help you find a topic. 


Chat moves fast on Twitter and it can help to give the community an opportunity to explore a topic with others using a medium other than text via an event that doesn’t have to be scheduled well in advance. Voice gives people a chance to speak up (literally) about something they have a comment on. It also encourages people to listen and learn. The ad-hoc nature of Twitter Spaces could make it more accessible.


Historically up to 100 people listen in and anywhere from 3 to 8 people come up on stage to share.

Ministry of Testing Twitter Space #TestYak

An audio-only 45 to 60-minute max Twitter Space from the MoT Twitter Account to chat about anything related to testing on a Friday. A more casual version of the Twitter Space Topic Exploration. The host or hosts talk about what’s been going on in the testing community and ask people what they have been up to. They invite questions and encourage people to share. The casual nature typically sparks an engaging conversation.  


Historically up to 100 people listen in and anywhere from 3 to 8 people come up on stage to share.

Thursday Testing Tea

A 60-minute Lean Coffee session for a small group of people to discuss any topic related to testing. Run on a Thursday, using a ready-to-go Butter room.


Lean coffee is a great way to get a sense of what the community wants to talk about. It gives people space to bring their topic of interest to the table and see if others are interested. Lean Coffee allows participants to rapidly explore multiple topics within a short space of time. People often leave a session with good connections and plenty of ideas.


Historically 5 to 8 people tend to turn up and participate.

Welcome to the Ministry of Testing Community

A 60-minute interactive introduction to the Ministry of Testing community and an opportunity for new community members to get to meet each other. Run using a ready-to-go Butter room. Run any time on any day Monday to Friday.


By the end of this interactive session, participants will be able to:


  • Describe what Ministry of Testing is and how it helps the software testing craft

  • Discuss the importance of the Ministry of Testing Code of Conduct and how it helps the community

  • Name multiple ways to learn, contribute and connect with the community

  • Connect with other community members with shared interests

Joining a community for the first time can feel overwhelming, particularly as MoT has so many places to get involved. We might miss many opportunities to welcome people to the community in a way that sets them up for success in a way that works for them. We can also learn from new community members - they can teach us what’s important to them. Also, community members who have been around for a while enjoy introducing people to MoT.


Historically 5 to 10 people tend to turn up and participate.    

Note Takers

A joint note-taking session that revisits existing articles on the MoT Platform. Each Note Taker session is themed e.g. Exploratory Testing, Aspiring to Lead, API Testing. You decide which theme and articles to use in advance of the session. Run using a ready-to-go Butter room. Run any time on any day Monday to Friday for Pro members only. 


Some learners want to connect and learn by reflecting on the things they watch and read. Learning from others is also important and it’s interesting to see how others interpret something they’ve just read and watched. In doing so community members build connections and appreciation for each other and the diversity of this community.  


Historically 4 to 12 people tend to turn up and participate.
