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!
Link to pro membership.
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!
In my last TestProject blog post, I wrote about the integration of Sauce Labs cloud into the TestProject. Next to Sauce Labs, TestProject offers since release v0.60 also an integration to BrowserStack.
In this rather short article, I will explain what to do in order to connect your existing TestProject tests to BrowserStack.
In order to connect TestProject with BrowserStack, you need to have a BrowserStack account. This is a mandatory requirement before you continue reading with this article.
If you already have a BrowserStack account login to it and go to User Settings (1-2). On the Account page copy the user name (3) and the Access Key (4). You will need both to establish the connection. Read more
In several posts from last year, I wrote about the test automation platform TestProject (Post 1, Post 2 & Post 3) and how easy it is to set up a test automation project. However, in 2019 TestProject was missing the feature to connect to cloud hosting providers such as Sauce Labs or BrowserStack.
The good news is, this has changed. Since TestProject v0.60, you are able to connect your TestProject projects to an existing Sauce Labs or BrowserStack account to execute your test suites in parallel on different devices.
In this article, I will describe how you can connect TestProject with Sauce Labs. In an upcoming article, I will write about the integration to BrowserStack.
In order to connect TestProject with Sauce labs, you need to have a sauce labs account. This is a mandatory requirement before you continue reading with this article.
If you already have a Sauce Labs account login to it and go to User Settings (1-2). On the My Account page copy the user name (3) and the Access Key (4). You will need both to establish the connection. Read more
It’s bin a long time since I wrote my last blog post. At the moment there is not so much time for me to write down all the posts I have in draft mode. Sorry for that! However, since christmas is almost there and the german edition of my book Hands-On Mobile App Testing is available since end of September with the title Mobile App Testing, I want to give all my german speaking blog readers/ lurkers 😉 the opportunity to win a signed copy of the german edition.
Today, I want to try something new. Maybe you have read my blog review 2015 in December and you have noticed that I wrote 104 blog posts in 2015. However, I want to scale the amount of blog posts on this blog and therefore I need your help. I am looking for guest blog posts like the one from Brian Hamilton or the one from Joel Montvelisky.
If you are working as a software tester, software engineer in test, scrum master with a focus on high quality software or you are a product manager who loves to ship high quality product this might be of interest for you. Maybe you want to share your knowledge in a guest blog post here. However, there is no need to be an expert in your role, I would love to see guest blog posts from every level of experience, from junior to senior. From my point of view it doesn’t matter which skill level you have, I think that everyone has something to share :).
Maybe the guest blog posts on my blog will help you to develop your writing skills and will help you to learn more about the area you are working in. So if you are interesting in writing an guest blog post, please get in contact with me. You will find my email in the about me section.
