Please join me in welcoming @janetgregoryca to Mastodon. Janet is one of the authors of the Agile Testing books, and all around great human. I hope she gets to enjoy her time here as much as I do.

More brilliant people arriving at mastodon. Let me introduce y’all to @FionaCCharles who is my go to person in the world for wisdom and good framing of tricky problems. She is a frequent keynoter in the #testing space and lovely human.

digging a canal round your house requires moativation.

Developer I appreciate launched training today, where one of the modules was "Learn to test anything". Yet, the contents were about technical testability for functional scenarios. That is not everything.
