Something is happening to testing!
A number of forward thinking testers in India have gotten together and formed Weekend Testers . Already there have been a number blogs posted about what an innovative idea this is – and these blogs post referrals/conference talks are from industry leaders such as James Bach and Michael Bolton which is high praise indeed.
I’ve been communicating with Parimala Shankaraiah who is one of the founders of Weekend Testers on Exploratory Testing (she has even taken the time to post some great comments on the google group Software Testers New Zealand.) If Parimala is an example of the thinking and passion towards testing in the Weekend Testers community then the Indian testing discipline is in good hands!
It does seem to me that are great inquisitive testers coming through every single day and the world-wide web is one way to keep track of and collaborate with these powerful thinkers!
