Bloggers Club: Sprint 13 - New Timelines

(Heather) #1

So folks we’re trying new timelines to revive the bloggers Club. We’ll spend 2 weeks suggesting and voting on topics. Once the topic is decided, you have 1 month to write a blog post on that topic.

So this sprints timelines are:

10th May voting ends for Sprint 13.

7th June is the target to have your blog post submitted.

Let’s see some suggestions :slight_smile:

My suggestion would be “Your experience with ethics in tech”.

Reasons: I’ve seen a good bit of chatter about this on slack. I’m also interested in other peoples experiences with this as I’m sure we’ve all had very different ones!

Your first experiences with accessibility testing. How you started, where your learning began and any assumptions you had to question, change or drop completely.

Reasons: While there’s a good general knowledge in a lot of the MoT community and resources in the Dojo, when I meet other testers there is very little awareness or testing going on. I’ve been fortunate to visit a few European conferences and its a similar story. If we can demystify getting started we can get more people aware and doing, even if it starts with the low hanging fruit.

Do you trust software less now you understand how it works and how it frequently doesn’t ?

(Heather) #6

It depends :stuck_out_tongue:

(Gregory Paciga) #7

hmm I happen to already have a draft along these lines, is that cheating? :slight_smile:

(Ady Stokes) #8

Definitely not! :wink:

(Daniel) #9

It might have a limited scope, but, how about your thoughts of TestBash (or whatever your last conference/meetup you went to)?

(Ady Stokes) #10

Could be a good one Dan. We already have a Brighton thread but maybe what we want / don’t want in conferences would open it up and make it more useful?

There was recently a discussion on the club about the ISTQB qualifications.

It would be interesting to read blog posts about differentexperiences in ISTQB, what courses have you done, was it a positive/negative experience, was it a waste of time, have there been any benefits, if you’ve not done any of the courses has it held you back (prevented you from getting a job for example).

Seems like this is the winner!

(Ady Stokes) #13

Well, I better do a post then! Hope some folks join me
