Glasgow Ministry of Testing Group has been underway for over a year, meeting on the 4th Monday of every month and discussing a wide range of topics from Automation in testing, through Testing Oracles, to Communication. Every month the group, ranging from new graduates just embarking on their test career, through those at the coal face in many different testing roles, right up to experienced test managers, come together to learn through discussion and group exercises - there are no stupid questions in a Socratic debate!

Phase two of the meetup is just starting now and this meet up, sponsored by Edge Testing, will be a Lean Coffee session where attendees can suggest and vote for topics of discussion - if there's anything you'd particularly like to talk about please comment to the meetup.

In addition, we'll also be crowdsourcing some ideas for future  sessions / topics / activities. Some of the topics that members would like to talk about include:
