And so it begins…

I’ve finally decided to add my voice to the blogsphere. It’s been a long time coming, but I now realize I have some valuable things to share and my recent experience at the Let’s Test conference in Stockholm gave me the final push I needed to put virtual pen to virtual paper and start to share my thoughts.

It was the Kiwi Workshop on Software Testing in Wellington in July 2013 that convinced me to join the Twitter conversation (I am also @therockertester over there) and I’m very glad I did – the vast amount of knowledge being shared by the context-driven testing community via Twitter is truly amazing. My anti-Twitter opinions have been changed by the experience of the last year interacting there, so I would encourage other testers to join the testing conversations there also.

As I mentioned, I was lucky enough to attend Let’s Test recently and also honoured to get a speaking slot, which turned out to be a great experience in itself. I wrote an article for the June 2014 issue of Testing Trapeze magazine about my experience of attending Let’s Test and this piece was written within days of the conference ending in order to meet the magazine’s publishing deadline. Now that a month or so has passed since then, I’ve had more time to reflect on the experience and I think those reflections will make good fodder for my first proper blog post, to follow sometime soon…
