Being a professional tester is not a goal but a continuous journey.
If you are a professional tester you are probably naturally curious, and if you enjoy your job then you probably make an effort to learn more, improve and progress.
This won’t be the first blog post where I advocate the importance of continuous learning and the advantages of expanding your professional knowledge. The testing field is very dynamic, and it’s important to try and stay on top of the trends shaping your day-to-day work as well as you future career.
In the recently published “2016 State of Testing Report” we saw that 68% of participants declared their training as ‘Self-taught’ (books, magazines, Internet, etc).
Indeed great blogs, testing magazines, forums and Twitter accounts to follow are only a quick google search away.
But since you are here at the moment, I would like to invite you to our upcoming webinar:
“2016 State of Testing Discussion: How will your job change in the coming years”
Following the 2016 State of Testing Report, keep-up your ‘Self-education’ efforts! Join us for this Roundtable discussion about the professional trends you should be aware of that will shape your job in the coming year and beyond.
Co-hosted by this blog’s very own Joel Montvelisky together with Lalitkumar Bhamare, Chief Editor of Tea-time with Testers Magazine, and alongside our guest star speakers: Keith Klain and Matt Heusser.
The session will be held online on Wednesday, May 11th, at 11 AM EDT.
