Last year I wrote an article for Stickyminds about Participating in Code Reviews as a Tester where I made the case for Code Reviews being more than just a chance to catch bugs. They also serve as a chance to see how something is built and have a conversation about it.
We, as Testers, question software differently from developers so it’s important that we participate in this knowledge-sharing practice and now I’m going to try to show everyone how!
I’ve partnered with TestCraft for a webinar on May 21, 2019 at 9am PST.
I will demonstrate a live Code Review (or two) and show everyone it’s not about knowing how to code, it’s about asking questions and learning about the changes.
Expect to Learn:
The basic git workflow, where the creation of a Pull Request leads to Code Reviews
What to look for when you are Code Reviewing from a tester’s perspective
A practical way to get started doing your Code Reviews on your own
The webinar will end with a Q&A.

April has come and is nearly gone without any prose being published. I couldn’t have that. You see I’ve been writing but I haven’t condensed that prose into a nice enough package to share. In the meantime lots of things are happening that are worthy of sharing:
On Friday, May 3rd at 10:00am PST, I’ll be hosting Doug Hoffman for the AST’s May webinar on “The Often Overlooked Test Oracle: The Key to More Powerful Testing”. I love talking with Doug because he’s so knowledgeable and frankly I think Test Oracles aren’t very well understood. Learn More or Sign Up.
Despite being the “just” the Treasurer for the AST, I’m actively involved in most aspects of the business including finance, marketing, SEO, IT, conferences, education and elections to name a few. Ultimately what this means is I spend a good deal of my time trying to help improve the organization. It’s a fun challenge.
