AST boosted

I'm happy to announce that the Association for Software Testing (@AST) has graciously become a sponsor of sw-development-is.social.

They're covering hosting costs for the coming year with the intent to help this instance serve as a vibrant and safe place for testers and developers to talk about the theory and practice of our work, have a laugh, provide support, feel supported, and gain access to the Fediverse.

Steel yourselves! Lee will argue that a separate testing phase is the best way to ensure testing happens at the right time and enable the necessary gatekeeping.

An AST webinar on 30th January.

Steel yourselves! Philip B. Crosby famously claimed that quality is free in his revolutionary 1979 book. Anne-Marie will argue that his thoughts are now more valid than ever in an AST webinar on 30th January.

Software development is a social activity

A social place intended as a chill hangout place for software testers, developers, or just about anyone involved in delivering software and who is interested in both the technical as well as the social side of things.

sw-development-is.social is supported by the Association for Software Testing.
