It’s official I’m a member of the Association for Software Testing or AST as it’s commonly known.
I’ve been meaning to sign up so I can take the BBST Foundations Course, meet some local (or not so local) context-driven testers, perhaps post on their discussion boards and eventually head to CAST (I’m aware you don’t have to join to go).
I’ve been bouncing around the idea of setting up some type of local tester chapter / meet up place where testers can get together, train with each other, perhaps join in a weekend tester session, learn from each other, etc. The problem is I’m not sure how to go about doing it.
In other news I also signed up for Udacity’s Software Testing (CS258) class. I’m not a programmer and it does require Python programming experience so I’m going to focus on getting up to speed before the class. I’m curious as to what they’ll teach although the syllabus gives some hint. Units include:
- Domains, Ranges, Oracles, and Kinds of Testing
- Code Coverage
- Random Testing
- Advanced Random Testing
