Projects


Explore some of the personal projects I’ve worked on over the years:

Current projects:

A community driven site of testing conferences and workshops from around the world.

Testing Conferences

  • 2015 to Present
  • My first experiment with GitHub Pages and Jekyll was to build a simple list of software testing conferences and workshops from around the world. This was a project to scratch my own itch, I wanted to know what I was missing.
  • An open source, community driven list.
  • One, if not the, top result when you search for testing conferences. It is used by conference goers and speakers worldwide.
  • Hundreds receive a monthly email with the latest updates from the site (mostly about which conferences and workshops are upcoming for the month).

ChrisKenst.com

  • 2017 to Present
  • Forked from an existing site. I liked the simplicity of this site so much I now use it as a landing page for my namesake domain.
  • Built using GitHub Pages, CSS and HTML.
The original source for the principles of the CDT approach to software testing

Context Driven Testing

  • 2020 to Present
  • The site was originated by Cem Kaner to be the original source for the principles of the Context Driven Testing school (later changed to be an approach) of software testing.
  • I gratefully took over ownership in 2020.

Los Altos Workshop on Software Testing

  • 2020 to Present
  • LAWST or the Los Altos Workshop on Software Testing is a peer workshop and format of peer workshops in software testing.
  • I gratefully took over ownership in 2020.

Former projects:

Chris Reads, Reading List

  • 2014 to 2020
  • My first Rails application is a Reading List. I put its code on GitHub and then deployed it to Heroku’s free tier so I could use it as a targeted application for testing and demos.
A former personal wordpress blog. All content is now here.

ChrisKenst.com

  • My first real WordPress site with articles stretching back to 2006. It’s active but slowly being torn down.
  • I’ve since moved to Journaling as an alternative to personal blogging. I only want to maintain one WordPress site at a time.
