Testing Peers

Happy new year and welcome to the first Testing Peers episode of 2021. Hopefully, you have all managed to enjoy the holiday season given the restrictions.

In this episode, the Peers discuss one of Simon’s pet projects. We discuss the lack of testing being taught in Universities and how we as an industry can help to attract more people into testing roles. We also talk about what skills we should look for when hiring people into first testing roles.

This leads us onto discussing a syllabus which Russell had previously put together for new aspiring testers which he shared at the Testing Folks meet-up. 

If you have any thoughts on this subject and how we as an industry could do more to attract others into testing, get in touch and let us know your thoughts.


We really appreciate all the feedback that we have received and invite you to get in touch with us:
