One of the things I love about the Testing Community is how we share information and learn together. Before I move on with more postings on leadership, I wanted to share with you information I learned from Lalit Bhamare, one of the editors of Tea-time with Testers about a project he and Joel Montvelisky are embarking upon. You may be familiar with Joel’s blog QA Intelligence – a QABlog and the e-magazine Tea-time with Testers.
Background on this project
Joel was looking for information to write a post about the advances in the testing world in the last 5-10 years and he realized that there is no centralized set of information that provides visibility into what is happening and what are the trends in the world of testing today. That is when he turned to Lalit and they decided to turn this into a project.
They are going to launch a survey towards the end of the week and it will run for about 10 days. For this project to be productive the survey needs to reach as many testers as possible worldwide.
How you can participate
This is where you and I can be part of this project. Please click here and you will be directed to Joel’s blog where he shares more information about this survey and you can subscribe to get notified when the survey goes live! All you need to do for now is enter your email address to receive the notification. This is an excellent opportunity to be involved at the beginning as this is a survey that will be conducted each year. What a fabulous idea to start gathering information on testing trends and how they change over time.
What else you can do
After you sign-up to participate in the survey, let your friends and co-workers know about the survey. You can share this information through Twitter, Facebook, G+ and other social media platforms. The more testers around the world that participate the better the results. I do hope you will consider participating!
