"In a team of developers who write quality automation how, as a tester, can you add value?". This is a question I now ask in every interview I do with testers. Many of the testers I see have good automation skills. However, when everyone is doing a very good job of writing the automation, you need to be able to add value in other ways.
On 26-29th September TestBash and the first Test.bash(); are happening in Manchester, UK. Super Early Bird tickets are now on sale! It's our third TestBash Manchester, the last two both sold out, so bear that in mind if you are interested in attending. This year’s event is bigger than ever with a total of six days of TestBash if you attend all the things!
This Masterclass is designed to talk about the agile ceremonies we tend to focus on, show where their long-standing use may result in the wrong outcome, and then recommend ways to fix those tendencies.
TestBash will be arriving in Dublin in a matter of weeks! It's going to be a great few days of learning from 9 awesome speakers, meeting other testers and sharing ideas. Cannot wait! Have you booked your Early Bird Ticket?

What’s your view on Test Managers and the role they play in the modern Software Development ecosystem? The role of a Test Manager has changed and will look different across organisations who employ them.
I’m pulling together some information about exploratory testing, and wondered what your favourite resources are for learning about what it is and how to do good exploratory testing.
Highlighting a selection of blog posts from the testing community.
I talked before about whether testers should be developers and I also talked about the intersection of development and testing with a focus on testability. Here I want to make that intersection a little more actionable by considering an example over a series of posts.
When you’ve agreed what you want to automate, the next thing you’ll need to do is choose a tool. As a tester, most of the conversations I observed from a distance, between managers and people selecting a tool, focused on only one aspect. Cost.
