Automation or manual testing – mentoring question.

Reading Time: 3 minutesI am happy to say, that this is the first question that came through the mentoring form on my blog. It has been a while before someone “takes the courage” to ask a question 🙂 So, once again people, if you have any questions – ask, I don’t bite, I am only trying to help. As I promised, I won’t use real names, so I will replace them with any that I made up. Here it is: Hello, I have […]

Software testing is not … part 3.

Reading Time: 4 minutesLinks to the previous two parts: Software testing is not… Software testing is not … part 2. Software testing is not activity that could be performed by irreplaceable robots. I can say for sure that this is one of the most incorrect statements in testing and also one of the most toxic ones. Of course no body is saying that, no body is that dumb, but it is based on a false assumptions and it produces a lot of other […]

Software testing is not … part 2.

Reading Time: 3 minutesSoftware testing is not … part 1. I am moving towards next couple of branches from the mind map that I posted in first post of the series of “Software testing is not…”.

On trolls and men. Summary of a lightning talk.

Reading Time: 5 minutesI had my first talk at a conference hooray! It was exciting, it was interesting and it was challenging for me. So, having in mind my inability to write short stuff and the way I always add more and more, my lightning talk preparation really helped me master a new skill and not try to squeeze 30 min lecture in 5 mins. The conference is called QA challenge accepted and is a local conference about software testing in Bulgaria, where I am […]

Software testing is not…

Reading Time: 7 minutesSoftware testing is not … part 2. Software testing is not … part 3. Software testing is not… finding bugs part 4 Software testing is not … playing. Part 5 Software testing is not … easy to explain. Last part.

Test conf calendar page is live!

Reading Time: 2 minutesI’ve done some changes to my blog, as you might noticed. Besides the fact that I changed the theme, so it doesn’t look like my grandma made the design of it 🙂 I had the idea to make sort of page with all testing conferences I know and have their information and links to their websites, but it turned out it isn’t that easy. So, the idea was dormant for some period of time and now I finally figured it […]
