Ministry of Testing’s Weekly Software Testing Newsletter

Hello,

Maaike Brinkhof gave an outstanding talk during TestBash Home, which most of us could relate to. During and after her talk, some of you mentioned that you’d taken Maaike’s course and really recommended it. So if you’re interested in understanding your own cognitive biases and how you can use them to your advantage while testing, check out Maaike’s course Cognitive Biases.

Hello,

Have you ever wondered about what the future is for test cases? They pop up regularly in the community and have a bit of a marmite feel to them at times. During one of the panel Discussions at TestBash Home, our panellists will discuss what their future is and what value they can provide. They’ll be basing this on diverse experiences and situations to give you a rounded view of what the future holds. Have you booked your spot yet?

Hello,

TestBash Home 2020 left a lasting impression on the testing community, setting the bar incredibly high for online conferences. It’s 2021 and we’re doing it again. It was needed last year and it’s needed this year. Yes, we are all zoomed and videoed out, but TestBash is more than watching talks. TestBash Home is a chance to connect with the community, have conversations, share your knowledge, and to co-create the best online TestBash experience we can. I look forward to creating TestBash Home with you.

Hello,

This week I was reminded of the importance of self care and looking out for me. It’s something I’m not always good at and need to work on much more regularly! I love Gem Hills talk “Filling your self care backpack” to help figure out what self care means and where to even start with it. Maybe you needed a reminder this week as much as I did?

Hello,

I spent the weekend reflecting on Exploratory Testing Week and the discussions that happened. One that stuck in my brain was figuring out how to help the C-level (think CIO or CTO) understand the value of testing, specifically exploratory testing. Keith Klain did a great talk about exactly that, learning to speak their language. I think the key information from Keith’s talk could apply to most of our interactions with the rest of the business — managers, other teams, etc — it’s a valuable skill.
