This has been a busy week for newcomers. Welcome Everybody!
Kia Ora Grace!
Great to see another Kiwi in The Club.
I hope your social distancing is going well
I am Murat from London and a recent CS graduate. I’ve been in testing industry for two years now and currently working as a freelance tester and studying for ISTQ exam. It’s great to be here. Thanks.
My name is Graça, I transfer to QA position as tester. I like the idea of checking up on the product before it gets to the users hands, but I want to learn more! Thanks for the videos, they are looking good
Great to be here
My name is Justin, I have been in the tech industry for almost one year now. I am a QA tester for a cyber security firm. Looking forward to building more skills and movin on up in this industry. Good luck to everyone
I am currently into project management and looking for a career change. Just started with this course to know about testing. Planning to take ISTQB certification later. I will be grateful for any tips and guidance to get a testing job.
My name is Kim and I am super excited to be here among all of you great people who have a love for software. I’m not quite sure when I developed MY love for software but I did and there’s no going back now! lol. Very hopeful for all of the great lessons and instruction I will receive through this course.
I am a consultant in software testing. A few months ago a started my first project at the IT department of a bank. Unfortunately, the project does not meet my expectations. It is a slow environment and testing is done in an old-fashioned way. Now I want to develop myself further in testing and see what else is possible. I also hope to refresh the basics of testing with this course.
I am already enthusiastic
I am anagha and also working in the field of SW tetsting for healthcare applications.
Would like to hera from your testign approach , strategy used for medical SW.
we r into medical devices and also medical sw
There are some regulated business sectors which require “old-fashioned” software testing, for due diligence reasons, especially a need to have cast-iron audit trails. Medical systems is one such area; finance is another. This usually involves manual script execution with detailed lists of test results achieved. That’s just the way it is.
That isn’t to say that more modern test techniques - exploratory testing in particular - can’t be used as well. Even if your organisation doesn’t work on an agile basis and so you are waiting for new releases to be thrown “over the wall”, that doesn’t mean that you can’t do some exploratory work on earlier versions, or on versions with known bugs that you can avoid to see what else is, or isn’t working, and how well. Finding bugs that are off the ‘happy path’ but still have a better-than-medium risk of occurring in deployment will add value to the product (in avoiding rework later) and demonstrate the value of more flexible testing approaches.
Thank you for the introduction and I look forward to the subsequent videos and lessons @mwinteringham
I have to say I’m pretty new to testing and the IT world really. I’ve decided to have a career change and move away from my original path as a chef and nutritionist! I’ve been told by a few people in the industry that testing is a great place to start, so I’ve ended up here and I’m actually quite excited!
My plans are to work towards the ISTQB certificate, learn the basics of software development and gain some work experience. I would eventually like to learn some coding languages and this is one of things I am most excited about!
Anyway good to meet everyone and hope you’re staying safe and well amid this pandemic!
I’ve been working as a Qa tester for almost 3 years but this is going to be the first course related to QA believe it or not , all the knowledge that I’ve learned has been with the experience and by asking a lot of questions to my team. I am really excited to be here and I hope to learn a lot.
My name is Shuja, and I work as Software QA Engineer for a tech startup in Malaysia. I joined this company in 2018 and in the last 2 years I have enjoyed each and every aspect of software testing from from reviewing requirements to planning, designing and executing tests. I enjoy process improvement initiatives that we take to help teams to adopt those processes, mentoring interns and keep doing every thing related to testing.
My goal is to implement automated regression testing for web and mobile apps but not limited to…
Glad to be a part of this community.
@mwinteringham Thanks for the warm welcome, Mark.
Hi everyone, my name is Laura.
I am a complete beginner to testing and enjoying the Essentials course so far. A while ago I completed an online bootcamp in web development as I was interested in learning how to build websites, and the languages behind them. I really enjoyed developing new skills and the challenges that came with solo learning! With the current lockdown, I find myself with some free time and ready for a brand new challenge in something completely new to me!
My name is bryn.
I have absolutely no background in testing but am looking for a new challenge and have been told my skills might be suited to this type of work.
I’m currently a PE teacher and have been coaching sprinting for over twenty years at my local club in cambridge, uk. Before that I’ve done an awful lot of current things from working in a vault for a bank, pensions company, Motorola, police officer and sports supplement company.
I’m really looking forward to getting a better understanding of the industry and starting out on my new path.
My name is Stacey. I am interested in starting a career in QA and I’m looking forward to learning all I can from this course. Glad to be here and I hope you all are safe and healthy.
Hi Everyone, I’m a tech sales guy with experience of having worked for companies like Oracle,IBM, Gartner & Intuit. Having said that, I’ve been thinking of transitioning into software testing for some time now.
I’ve taken some time off to reassess my priorities, on the professional side. My coding knowledge is rusty at best. I am planning to get started with manual testing and then move onto automation testing. I’m excited about what lies ahead and am looking forward to connecting with members of the MoT community!
I am looking at starting a career in Software/QA Testing.
Currently I lead a Technical Support Team for a Professional Audio company.
Most of our products are digital and software based, and I am involved in UAT and BETA testing along with gathering feedback from our customers and trying to reproduce issues/bugs that they raise, and feedback to our Software Development team.
I am planning on taking some time out from work to fully immerse myself into learning the new skills I need, starting with this course!
Hello all, I am hopeing to change my career path. Software testing seems to align wih me and I am eager to start a new chapter in my life.
Hi everybody, my name is sam, i am from Washington dc. i am here to learn and start a new career as a performance tester. i have been self learning testing for a little bit but stumbling on the MoT website was the best thing ever, its dope to see such a community where i can learn a lot from. i am really excited and THANK YOU! @mwinteringham and everyone from MoT team.
