Today I want to share my own mnemonic which I have created over the last month. It's called "MOBILE APP TESTING"! Easy to remember right? What follows is a detailed description of the mnemonic with explanations, tips and resources to help you with mobile testing.
In this podcast, The Super Testing Bros are joined by Dougie Hoskins and Antonia Landi to discuss all things mobile testing!

This talk is the amusing and awkward tale of what it's like to share something deeply important for the first time. How can you prepare beforehand? How can you respond if you are the colleague? What do you do if one of you puts your foot in your mouth?

This month we're going to look at Agility, have you come across any or all of the following challenges? Disparate Agile skills; Poor application performance; Limited Software Engineering skills; Lack of clear non-functional requirements gathering/testing (NFR/NFT). If you answered yes to any of these, you need to hear this story about how a team tackled these challenges.
We've picked a few topics of interest from The Club for you to read, contribute and generally get involved with.
When is a good time to start test automation? (I often get people wanting/asking it as a priority and before any other testing has been done before). In your experience: When is a good time to start automation? Why?
In recent years, Chrome and Firefox have started having regular release cycles on their browsers, which automatically update every 6 weeks or so. How does everybody go about browser testing, keeping older versions in mind?
Highlighting a selection of blog posts from the testing community.
I love the Testing Community, there are so many opportunities to share knowledge, talk to others, attend events and learn. I had heard the term “Imposter Syndrome” banded about for the last few years and never really felt it myself, but recently, I have not only experienced it myself, it actually brought a sense of “Am I doing it wrong?” and having had some conversations on social media I started to realise I wasn’t alone.
I have a particular bugbear about people asking how to freelance in software testing and then all these rubbish responses popping, mostly pointing to places that apparently advertise jobs or are an intermediary ‘bug finding’ service.
