I have 3 kids. And lets face it, it’s hard to get out meeting people sometimes. I’ve long wanted to do some kind of networking/meetup that welcomed kids. It seems that the time has come for testers of the world/UK With TestBash happening in March I became aware that a few of the attendees were [...]
This video, ‘Start Now. No Funding Needed’ is pretty much how I approach things. Do small things. Fail. Succeed. Analyse. Improve. Grow slowly and only spend money that I can afford to lose. Everything starts somewhere, where will you start?
Soulver is a Mac App that helps you solve number problems. It’s kind of like a textual calculator. When I do stuff with my business I always want to do some quick calculations. How much money will this bring in? What costs are there? Would there be anything left in the pot at the end? [...]
I find myself learning. Constantly. These days it’s more about running businesses, startups, (lean) marketing and growth hacking than testing. To be honest, all my energy for testing related content goes on The Testing Planet and/or Ministry of Testing. I’ve kind of being keep of track of things for myself, but not consistently enough. Sometimes [...]
Yeah, I’m running a software testing conference. It’s only our second one. It’s still nerve racking. There’s still alot of work to do, it doesn’t ‘just happen’ and we are still learning with each thing we do. We want to make it something we are proud of and this in my heart especially means giving people [...]
You don’t launch a popular blog, you build one. – Seth Godin This resonates with me. Because it applies to most things in life. You don’t launch a popular community, you build one. You don’t launch a successful career, you build one. You don’t launch a successful startup, you build one. You get the picture. [...]
Sometimes I feel like an imposter. Am I tester, or not? Am I a social media marketeer, or not? Am I a sales person, or not? Am I a community manager, or not? Am I a content creator and editor, or not? Am I a CEO (of a tiny company), or not? Some times when [...]
What happens when you can talk back to ads? This does! All the Tweets below were promoted tweets. @foundationdb You’re a bunch of pathetic idiots who blew their funding on a k/v store whose uselessness must be covered up with buzzwords. — Glico Morinaga (@buckleysangel) January 5, 2013 @onefinestay Like I know anyone with the [...]
There’s talk in the startup world of needing a Minimum Viable Team – ie – the people and skills needed to get a startup off the ground. Solo-founding is often talked about as something to avoid as there is more chance of succeeding as a team. From my experience the whole thing of working with [...]
We all start with no competence. We don’t know how to do stuff at the beginning, but we all learn to eat, crawl, walk, read, write, draw, etc. As life progresses we learn stuff. The more we learn and do stuff the more competence we have. With competence comes confidence, almost naturally I would say. [...]
I'm Rosie Sherry. I currently spend my time working on building up community and products for the software testing industry.
This includes running the Software Testing Club, a community of software testers. The Ministry of Testing - software testingevents and learning opportunities. And last, but not least, creating a community of freelance software testers over at Test Ninjas.
