It's good to remind yourself of the things folks do for the testing community. 

Recently I've taken to the Ministry of Testing (MoT) LinkedIn page to publish short sharp articles. I do so by taking an existing article from the MoT site and sharing a fresh take. Not only does it spread the MoT word, but it's also our way of reminding people that there are many brilliant contributors to the testing community. Try the following and celebrate the author/s who inspired each post — just look for a name and article link at the end:

Can you help with the following?

  1. What career advice would you give to your younger self?
  2. Romina would like to know: How do you fill out your performance review?
  3. What testing mindmaps do you know of? asks Bolette.
  4. Veronika is keen to find out what characteristics make for a good tester
  5. What should you include in an interview?
  6. Inspire others with your writing. Add your recent blog post to this thread. ✍️

Have a great week.

— Simon, CommunityBoss

P.S. Have you broken Kate's record?
