"If we reduce the number of employees for better short-term financial results, employee morale will decrease. I sincerely doubt employees who fear that they may be laid off will be able to develop software titles that could impress people around the world."

As of a few hours ago I am available for new work opportunities. If you, or anyone you know, has an open test leadership role please reach out to me. I am currently in Florida, USA and would prefer a remote position in the USA; however, I am eligible to work in Canada and the UK as well and I am willing to consider any serious offer.

A quick reminder that law enforcement *responds* to crime, but a living wage, food and water security, accessible healthcare, and public education *prevent* crime.

If you want safer communities, invest in people, not punishments.

I live in Florida and had an oak tree in my front yard damaged by hurricane Ian. We decided to cut it down partially because of the damage and as it was also wrecking our driveway. When it was down to a 4m high stump I asked them to stop. It looked like something that could be made into art. Now, thanks to Chris Gray from Luna Tikis it IS art. Enjoy before and after images.

Hello Mastodon!! I am strongly considering leaving Twitter. Is this going to be my new home? I am a passionate software tester and an instructor of Rapid Software Testing. I am currently Head of Testing at Saks Off 5th.

I created an account on a different server and followed a lot people. Then I found this server and thought it might be better to be on a server with a bunch of people I know and respect already on here. When I "moved" my account, it moved my followers but did not move my profile details or the people I had decided to follow. That was a little annoying - and I apologize if you got followed by me twice. 😕
