... I am so looking forward to this! Most importantly, I will be glad not having to job search. The next two weeks can be like an extended staycation.
Good thing, too! There is so much I want to do:
- Ahold uses as an automation solution Selenium WebDriver with Java, Serenity BDD as a testing framework, and the Zephyr plugin for JIRA. Although I am starting out manual testing -- the best way to learn how a product works and how it ticks -- it'll eventually move to automation. I want to make sure I am ready! I'll be researching all about those testing tools. Expect a few blog articles on BDD, Serenity, and Zephyr in a few months!
- I am now a new co-coordinator of the Ministry of Testing - Boston Meetup group. Are you a QA Engineer in the Cambridge, MA or Boston, MA area? Come join us! Are you a QA Manager who wants to share your knowledge and wisdom? I know a group who would love to be your audience! Contact me so we can set something up on our event calendar.
- In two weeks, the Ministry of Testing - Boston group will have its next QA dinner-and-discussion meeting at Panera Bread in Porter Square, Cambridge, MA. We held our last Meetup on February 7th, 2017 at John Harvard's Brew House. It was a very good group of people, with some thought-provoking questions on the nature of quality and how one can assure it. I am working that into a new proposal for my next TechBeacon article.
- Oh, and I still need to finish off my blog series on the Java library, REST Assured, a way to test RESTful APIs. The first article was written on February 4th. I had the sample code all ready to go, when my five year old PC ran into a blue-screen problem, and I haven't been able to bring it back to life. Luckily, I have backups, and backups of backups that hopefully will be able to set me up when I finally purchase a new machine. In the meantime, this Asus Chromebook I bought when that happened has really been suiting my needs!
