Ministry Of Testing Support - Adventures in QA

Support Your Community

Today, I am writing to you – the software testing community – with a special request. I bet you all are affected by the current virus situation as well. If you are active participants at testing meetups and conferences, you might have seen tweets or emails like the following, in the last days.

Ministry of Testing Pro Membership

I am extremely sad for the whole Ministry of Testing family, that they had to cancel already 2 big events this year, TestBash Detroit and TestBash Brighton. If you have ever attended one of the Ministry of Testing events, you know how loving, caring and engaging those events are. In order to support the Ministry of Testing family, I hereby ask you to purchase a pro membership, to support them in what they are doing – creating a lovely and engaging software testing community.

The pro membership is only £249.99/year and is worth it. You get access to 17 expert online courses, 43 Dojo Masterclass recordings and to more than 450 TestBash conference talks. Especially in times where traveling is not allowed by companies, this is the best way to stay connected to the community and to learn more about software testing and other topics.

So I want you, to get to your people manager by today and ask him or her to get the pro membership from your training budget. Keep in mind, that the price for the pro membership is far less than attending ONE conference.

If you have questions around the pro membership, please let me know. I can tell you more about it!

Disclaimer: I wrote this blog post without getting paid by the Ministry of Testing. The Ministry of Testing family did also not ask me to write this blog post! I wrote this blog post on my own initiative to help and support everybody around the Ministry of Testing.

To all my readers, stay healthy!


TestBash 2015 and my Workshop about Mobile Testing

Ministry of Testing - Adventures in QA

Today, I am in Brighton to attend the TestBash 2015 conference as a speaker and attendee. However, this time I was not a normal speaker, no I was providing the conference with a 2h workshop about mobile Testing. The title of the workshop was “How to Break your App – Best practices in Mobile App Testing”.  My slides can be found via slideshare or in the embed version at the bottom of this post.

So far the conference is a blast. The first day this time is a workshop day, with a great line up of workshops. There were three tracks that covers great topics like

  • Mapping Exploratory Testing Tours & Personas – Karen Johnson
  • Games and Tools to Encourage Creative and Critical Thinking within Testing – John Stevenson
  • Exploratory Performance Testing with JMeter – Simon Knight
  • Supercharging your bug reports – Neil Studd

to just name some of them. The full workshop schedule can be found here.

Tomorrow there will be more TestBash action with lots of great talks from Michael Bolton, Stephen Janaway, Richard Bradshaw, Karen Johnson or Martin Hynie. Unfortunately, this years TestBash is sold out, however if you like to get some insights, check the twitter search for the hashtag #TestBash to get direct information from the audience.

Update: Now all TestBash Workshop Slides are available here.

Happy Testing!
