ATA Pune 17th Meetup Round-Up


Agile Testing Alliance celebrated its 17th meetup at Tieto’s Kharadi office on 16th February 2018
ATA would like to thank the entire team of Tieto and all the folks who could make it to the community meetup on a Friday afternoon.
Mr Nilesh Sahasrabudhe (VP, Country Head , Tieto India) gave an excellent community introduction about Tieto including the meaning of Tieto (Knowledge in Finnish) and set the mood for the rest of the day.

Prior to the welcome address, Tapasya Pathak (Manager Testing from Tieto) set the context and introduced the agenda for the day. Glimpses from the context setting session are as below. We were blessed to have the august company of Mr Mandar Gokarn and Mr Anand Phadye from start till the end.

The session then covered DevOps LifeCycle and Continuous Testing session by Aditya Garg (Steering Committee Member of ATA). Aditya also gave an ATA Introductory session before he jumped into DevOps Testing. Glimpses from his session are as below:

The much awaited session on Machine Learning and Python with Demo was given by Satyajit Singh. It was a revelation to also know that how easy it is for the testing community to start using some Machine Learning libraries for their own advantage. Satyajit session will probably continue in the next meetup. We look forward to learning from him more and more. Glimpses from his session are as below

The session was followed by a break. Tieto team had arranged for snacks (sandwiches, tea coffee and cookies) It was indeed a treat for the testing community for such a kind hearted and community driven organization like Tieto. Thanks to Anand, Mandar, Tapasya and their entire team for being such a great host. Some snaps were captured – produced below. But these do not do justice to the spread, fun and networking community was having.

The much awaited AutomATAhon followed. Participants from various organization were ready with their laptops and internet connections to jump into the competition. Later on participants moved around and made themselves comfortable in and around the auditorium to get the maximum out of their internet connections. Please see some pictures below.

In parallel ATA Pune meetup also ran a TestATAhon – a fun event which was really appreciated by the testing community which was not participating in the selenium competition. Glimpses are as below

The Pune meetup ended with Felicitation ceremony.
We would like to thank Mr. Anand Padhya (Head of Testing Services Tieto) who came on stage and felicitated the entire ATA team. Big Thanks to Mandar Gokarn who later on felicitated the entire Tieto team behind the event. Glimpses from the felicitation ceremony are as below.
