A few new Testers’ Island Discs with Neil Studd:

  • Ep16 — Danny Dainton. You’ve heard him name-checked for the past few episodes, so now it’s time to hear from the man himself, Danny Dainton! Danny talks to us about his unique journey to the island, including a ten-year spell in the military and a difficult first experience with testing.
  • Ep17 — Claire Reckless. It’s a warm Northern welcome to the island for Claire Reckless, who comes ashore to talk about the Manchester tech scene, her recent ventures into conference speaking and hosting the Software Testing Clinic, and how these play into her ongoing battles with impostor syndrome.

  • My Trip To TestBash Netherlands With Ministry Of Testing by Nebojsa Petkovic. I first found out about TestBash Netherlands and the Ministry of Testing Scholarship through Angie Jones’s post on LinkedIn but I was reluctant to apply and sceptical about getting it.
