Introduction by Anne-Marie the Maverick Tester
What and fun weird and amazing journey this book has gone through.
Its started its life more as a musing on twitter, “If I was a test case” how would I feel about testing? More as a joke I put out on the twittersphere
“If I was a test case I would…..”.
The response was amazing. Immediately tweets came in responding to the challenge and completing the phrase. The responses were dry and very witty and I was glad that testers all over the world were joining in the fun. I also posted the challenge on LinkedIn and the Software Testing Club and received more responses.
I have Parimala Shankaraiah to thank for the idea of a book. She had so much fun reading the responses she suggested that the responses be collated into an e-book. Pradeep Soundararajan had recently posted about Chandrashekar B.N (Chandru), a tester recently diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia. I wanted to help him out, and I was sure lots of other testers did too. I thought this would be a nice way to demonstrate our support for in and also raise some money for his transplant.
Advertisers have been very generous in their support, in particular ADTMag, but mostly I want to thank the testers all over the world who responded to the challenge.
Check out Chandru’s website if you would like to donate to his fund. Chandru, you are with us in our hearts. We hope this e-book will put
a smile on your face as you read the responses. Perhaps you would even like to add one?
