I had the honor of attending an event at Kablamo in Toronto for a Quality Engineering meetup, and yes, as their name suggests, they were super awesome! Although an insider told me The Simpsons inspired the nameโ€”if you know, you know.
This meetup was truly eye-opening for me. Before attending, I was biased and thought QA analysts were going out of their way to break the code and find problems. Little did I know, thereโ€™s a whole process and workflow involved, and QA is vital to the companyโ€”kind of like red flag flaggers.
Huge thanks to Anna Royzman , Nadya Shupta, and Rob Bowyer for sharing their knowledge. Special shoutout to automation experts Liam Maguire, Davis Zhu, and Alena Smiatanina for providing insights into Kablamo's innovative testing methods.
Watch for their future events; you won't want to miss them. They have amazing merch, quizzes, networking opportunities, and all that good stuff (including good food! plus prizes).
Special thanks Millan K. and Kablamo team for organizing this meetup.

It was a pleasure meeting you yesterday at the 'Quality Engineering and Testing in the Age of AI' meetup. It was a fantastic event with great speakers.
Congratulations on the new office in Toronto, you have a wonderful team. The questions were interesting, and it was great to participate in the discussions.
From: Levi
I did enjoy the event. I was in waitlist - glad you guys opened a spot for me.
I especially enjoyed Rob's and Anna's topics. The former's engaging Q&A and the latter's survey of test process and how AI could be used. I liked how your QA engineers do automation (sounds to me like a productive team).
Would there be more of these events?
Anyway, thanks for organizing the event and see you around.

Looking Forward

We are already planning our next event and can't wait to bring the community together again for another round of learning and networking. Stay tuned for more updates! and follow Kablamo on LinkedIn or Kablamo on Twitter
