I have become a fulltime trainer working for Software Education in New Zealand ( www.softed.com ) delivering software testing courses. As i’m now sitting more in the Academic space as opposed to the Practioner space, I have been given the opportunity to meet many different people, with different backgrounds, looking to gather new ideas to use in their testing jobs.
Some people won’t do much, if anything with this new knowledge (it’s human nature after all especially when the work pressure comes on) but some will. It is these testers that will hopefully feel inspired to share their thoughts and ideas with us all.
The internet has made us a very small, very connected global community and each thought expressed or shared (particularly in testing) is a thought worth considering. Maybe you have discovered a new idea with regards to testing or maybe even reaffirming an existing idea (and adding your own wrapper around it).
To those testers that i have met or to those people who may be reading this and haven’t yet considered creating a blog, please rethink. Your thoughts are valuable and your ideas are at least worthy of expression and/or comment.
I would to *hear* them – please let me know if you do!
