5 Ways to Time Travel Test [Whitepaper]
Temporal testing is critical for date sensitive business rules such as insurance rates, billing, and enrollment. Efficient time travel testing can increase your test coverage, accelerate development, and improve software quality. Read our whitepaper to learn the 5 ways to time travel software!

A break can do us all good.

So that’s what Team MoT did at the end of last week, as part of the UK’s extended bank holiday.

Having said that, last Wednesday I ran another Note Takers session. We read and shared notes on articles about aspiring to lead. Such a helpful way for a group of people to learn together — and also celebrate the contribution of community members who write for MoT. Thanks, Mirza and Nicola for their excellent articles. Check them out: Lessons Learned About Leadership, From Perspective Of An Aspiring Leader and Leading Test Teams When You’re Not A Manager.

I also chatted with our lovely MoT Slack Moderators. What a brilliant bunch of people who ensure the MoT Slack is a safe place to share ideas and chat with fellow testing professionals.

It’s good to see all that continues to happen in the community. When I return from a break my first port of call is always the Community Timeline. I then set sail to The Club, Twitter, LinkedIn and the MoT Slack. Plus I’ve probably forgotten another place as my brain hasn’t quite returned from small break mode!

All the talk recordings went live for TestBash Careers and Diana announced the full lineup for TestBash World. At the time of writing, there are 1,179 community members registered to attend. 👀 Say what! I’m chuffed to see many folks on the lineup who I advocate for. It’s gonna be one very exciting community event. Register for free today for 24 hours of testing goodness!

How about you, what are you looking forward to in the coming weeks? Do you have time away from work? I’d love to hear from you. Feel free to book a community catch-up call.

Have a good week.

— Simon, CommunityBoss
