Technology (A place to discuss things like testing micro-services, or event driven architectures, or programming language specific stuff).
Product Ownership, Software Development, Design. Not sure what to call this but, somewhere to discuss the other activities/roles involved in building software. I think we have a lot to learn from other communities, and we already have great members who have that background. So it feels like it might be inclusive to give them a space. I have no idea if there is a “demand” for this, being the only drawback.
These may need sub-categories, and yes there is some risk of overlap with other categories, something I can see you’ve done well to keep to a minimum.
Movements & Practices is now Movements, Practices & Coding – an attempt to emphasise that coding discussion is good to have here. This category would also be the place to discuss practices outside of testing-specific movements/practices/approaches.
Being Human along with sub-categories Mental wellbeing and Diversity, Equity & Inclusion.
Note for every category and its sub-category they’ll be a description to help someone make an informed choice as to where they might best create their topic. And with my mod power, I can always “move” a new topic until folks settle into a groove with the new categories.
Ok folks, please check out the new categories. They are available on the sidebar and also via the categories page.
You’ll no longer be able to post in “Sharing Lounge”, “Questions” and “Introductions”. We’ll work out later what we’d like to do with the topics that exist in those. Move some over and close some (that kinda thing).
I’ve moved some recent topic discussions over to their respective new category. Hope it helps.
