I have worked with Selenium(using Python)[1] and currently I am working with Cucumber + Watir (using ruby). I recently talked about 'Choose a testing stack that works for you'[3] at Dev Conf, Brno 2015. I enjoy networking with people and learning new stuff :)

It has not been reviewed yet. Can anybody review the article and let me know if this is relevant to be published. Also, share the feedback if any.

What I wanted to bring up was that FUDCons have followed the barcamp
style, which means topics can be suggested for sessions till the day
of the conference.  Us closing the CFP this early means we'll be
missing out on some good content from people who are present at the
conf, and want to talk about something.  So the idea is to have a
couple of additional tracks (MIT, the venue, has plenty rooms to
spare), where we have unscheduled (ie non-cfp) talks.

This proposal was accepted by all who attended the meeting today, so
let's not rush for a post on the last day of CFP; instead we'll do a
post later telling CFP is closed, but we still are doing barcamp
style talks, so people present don't miss out.

That also gives more incentive for people to turn up.
