📖 NEW ARTICLE: Coming back to testing after becoming a parent can be tricky. Pricilla shares her experiences and advice on coming back to work after parental leave.

Ben Dowen made a good point last week. He talked about how testing/quality professionals can give confidence to those who aren't testers. There's an opportunity to help developers learn fundamental testing principles beyond what they already know. Is there a developer you could pair with this week to run through a testing session? How might you demonstrate what you do so they could give it a go? We can help spread the testing effort across the team. There are lots of helpful community contributions about pairing on the MoT Platform to help you get started.
