Testers who write code

Description: In this workshop we will focus on those aspects of testing where we write code. There will be a strong focus on performance, automation, and security testing. A lot of discussion around tools, languages, frameworks, and design patterns. We will be looking for experience reports from people willing to share project stories, examples, and we would be willing to entertain proposals for hands-on coding activities during the workshop.
