Want a Practical Way to Measure Your Rest API Coverage Automatically?
Join us on June 21st for a webinar with Júlio de Lima, to learn how to streamline your testing process and more easily measure REST API testing. Which thankfully means getting rid of those tedious manual assessments.

I see many of the testing community continuing to share in public. And in doing so they continue to inspire. 

Last week I was fortunate to attend Leeds Testing Atelier. I’ve been meaning to go for a while. It’s brilliant. Great vibe and organisation. Fantastic speakers and topics. The common theme: How to build relationships with non-testers. I managed to take these notes:

Congrats to Veronika B. for giving their first talk at Romanian Testing Conference and Maryam Umar and Vernon Richards for their keynotes. I see this week is Agile Testing Days Open Air. I hope you have fun if you're attending. 

We have some exciting news about TestBash UK 2023. Diana Dromey, our EventBoss, has this to share: 

During the past couple of months, we’ve been working together with all fifteen TestBash UK 2023 speakers to develop fourteen 99-Minute Workshops and we are now happy to announce that all workshops have been added to the event page and App.

Cool, right? The workshops are ace! Read more about them.

Last week during This Week in Testing I had a super insightful conversation with Callum Akehurst-Ryan about what it means to be queer in tech. Look out for a write-up coming soon.

And finally, what can I say about 30 Days of Career Growth? The level of commitment and sharing has been immense. Thank you to everyone who has got involved so far. 🏆 If you're not yet involved I encourage you to review each day and see what positive impact they could have on your career. Look out for the "why" section if things are unclear.
