As we start to edge closer to the end of the year, lots of us are making changes and are planning out 2023. Some of us are focusing on “finishing strong”, others are focusing on “winding down”. No matter what you’re doing, we’ve something for you.

If learning is keeping you going at the minute, we’ve one more 99 minute workshop for you to attend. If you fancy planning something a bit fun, we’ve HolidayBash happening in a few weeks! Join the MoT team for a fun festive gathering 🎉

Neil is back with a new Testers’ Island Discs podcast, this time he’s chatting Clare Norman. They talk about the specific skills and traits that can help us to be better quality coaches, plus some rather excellent music selections from Clare.

What inspired your testing efforts in November? Was there something you listened to or read? What did you learn and try for the first time? Is there anything you revisited and had success with this time around? Why not share your experience with the rest of the community, or learn from other folks that are sharing.

Richard recorded a Feature Spotlight with Ashley Somerville. Richard got to find out how the low code platform from mabl actually worked, there was a moment of joy when discussing faker, as well as realising how mabl’s flows work. Richard asks all those questions that pop in your head, so you’ll get a deeper understanding of how you can actually use the platform.

Over on The Club, Simon picked on chat around testing careers — What does the career path look like at your company or companies you’ve previously worked at? How have they helped? How did they hinder? It’s interesting to see the different paths shared, maybe there are some you could help implement at your own workplace. They could give 2023 a new focus.

Hope you have good week!
