Announcement: Super Reads 12.12 is just around the corner!!!

12.12

For many years, Testing Curator has promoted and shared great content from the testing community.
However, from time to time, there are testing events that come up that Testing Curator just has to share.

One such event is Super Reads @ 12.12.  When @Nithin_Synapse of Synapse QA contacted us about the event, we knew that we had to help bring awareness of this event and become a Community Partner.

Have you heard of this event?  If not, here are some details from their website:

What is this event?

This event is brought to testers by PractiTest and they state that “OnlineTestConf was the first 100% online conference to provide all the advantages of attending professional QA related conferences: personal learning, networking etc. without the shortcomings of scheduling, expenses and travel. The conference has been running for the past 5 years on a semi-annual basis, long before COVID-19 forced all live events online.

State of Testing Survey 2020 – Now Live and ready for your response!

StateofTesting2020

For the last six years, I have enjoyed answering and reading over the results of the State of Testing Survey produced by PractiTest and Tea Time for Testers.

I am excited to see that the 7th annual State of Testing Survey 2020 is now live and ready for responses.

“The State of Testing™  seeks to identify the existing characteristics, practices, and challenges facing the testing community today in hopes to shed light and provoke a fruitful discussion towards improvement” – PractiTest

By taking the survey and promoting this en devour, you can help testers answer questions like:

– How much do your counterparts earn across the globe?
– What testing skills should you be working on to stay on top, appreciated and employed?
– What best practices have others found useful, and what mistakes have they made that you can avoid?
– How in the world does everyone manage with the triple A’s?: Agile, Automation & AI

Be sure to take the survey as soon as you can and let’s see if we can get a record number of response!  It only takes 10 minutes and you help the testing community learn more about itself.

Software QA & Testing Meetup – April 2016 Meetup Scheduled

Software QA & Testing Meetup

Attention Ohio Testers:

Our next meetup is scheduled for April 26, 2016.  We are just a few weeks away!  Matthew Eakin has volunteered to give a presentation on “Cucumber as a Collaboration Tool.”  Having heard Matthew speak on several occasions, I am sure this will be an interesting discussion.

For all of the details for our meetup and to RSVP, be sure to visit the Software QA & Testing Meetup on meetup.com.

If you are going to be in the Columbus area, we would love to see you there!


I am going to endeavor to try to post raw notes or recaps from previous meetups on a more frequent basis than I have in the past.

March’s meeting featured Damian Synadinos speaking on the topic of “Commutication – An Exploration of Idea Transfer With Words.”
