Well I’m back again while Simon is off enjoying himself for a few weeks!
I’ve recently had some time off myself and it gave me the opportunity to decompress and come back refreshed to work. Have you had the chance to have time away from work? It made me think of Kiruthika Ganesan’s talk “Career Breaks and How They Shaped Me and My Career”, not that I’m taking a career break, but how taking a break in general can help you.
Talking about things that could help you, write up from Simon “A Really Useful List For Exploratory Testers”, could help you generate some fresh ideas for your testing. It’s always worth revisiting ideas to help get a new perspective.
I do want to flag this ‘It’s OK’ TestBash Talks Mental Health playlist. I’ve noticed some community members struggling a wee bit at the minute, there is a lot happening in the world, with more worries than ever, so it’s important to look after your mental health.
I have mentioned various TestBashes, I’ve one last piece of news to share. We’ve just announced an extension to our Early Bird deadline — doubling our usual number available, plus some great offers on what might be the last public Automation in Testing training. Diana (EventBoos), has gathered all the information you need in this article.
