My Journey with TestEvents and Rob - 2014

It has been great pleasure working as volunteer with Rob van Steenbergen

How it Started?
Test events was a good website. It gave opportunity to know about testing events across the world.

Why i approached?
When i like to do something, I just do it from heart !

Was there any invite?
No invite.

I just took a step ahead myself, I approached him personally.
"Can i volunteerly help you?" 

How is the Journey?

Journey started from January 2014..

Firstly, he mentioned: Yes! - You can send out Conferences if missed.
Then again: There was an idea: Can we share - Conference videos and Podcast's for the events which happened.
He accepted my proposal and It started till December 2014.

Why Test Events is stopping ?
Rob wanted focus on his testing stuff. 

How was the Experience?

It was a good learning in my life, where some one has specially thanked me.

Journey Ends on .. 12th December 2014.

Vote of Thanks..

I wish Rob and his family, a good health and good life in his career.

Looking forward for "New - Test Events"

Hang on ! - Still website is available now.

Skills for a Tester

Short Notes from my learning's:

  1. Questioning Skills - To get information or for clear understanding based on previous experience / existing knowledge.
  2. Story Telling - Ability to describe concepts, research questions, and ability to translate complex ideas into common terms.
  3. Testing Software as a user perspective.  -- Point to be noted, Tester is also a USER.

Testers may not write a code / do performance test - But they must use testing techniques to test the system to provide valuable information, which we PROMISED to CUSTOMER.
