Ministry of Testing’s Weekly Software Testing Newsletter

Hello,

It often strikes me how much collective knowledge and experience our wonderful community must have. It’s amazing right?! As a community, we find many creative ways to help each other amplify collective knowledge and in the process, we meet new people.

One such way is via the 99-Minute Workshops. If you have knowledge and experience to share then we’d love to hear from you! Even if you’re new to running a workshop or think the topic has already been covered, we will help you work out how to make your workshop a reality. Head on over here to learn…

Hello,

I’ve been a member of MoT for years and recently joined as a CommunityBoss. It occurred to me in this role it’s important to revisit some questions:

- How might we capture this value in a simple format for reflection?
- How might ambitious statements guide, support and evolve the direction of the community and the relationship it has with MoT (the business)?

Have a look at the following statements and let me know what you think. I’m excited to see how this evolves!

Hello,

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?
