I know it is hard to find the time to do extra work after work but do you have any side projects at the moment or plan on starting any? You can also write if you started a side project and never finished ( I know I had a few of those). I am really curios to see if people still do IT related content after work or if they do somenthing else. If you want I can even start: I try to post on my youtube channel at least once a week but it does show that I do not invest that much time in there at the moment.
How has the cybersecurity landscape evolved in a post-pandemic world, and how can testers and developers ensure software security?"
With the increase in remote work and online services, cybersecurity has become more critical than ever. Did it have any impact on your work?Did your company add new security guidelines?Has it made you more aware of security risk?What are you thoughts on the matter?
Has DevOps delivered on its promise of improving both speed AND quality in your software engineering practices?
DevOps ways of working are designed to both accelerate the flow of work and simultaneously improve the quality, reliability and scalability of digital products. But research data suggests this hasn’t yet worked for everyone and that the majority of organisations are stalling in their implementations, unable to reach higher levels of capability. Where are you at with DevOps in your organization? Is it everything you hoped it would be? (Best answer wins a copy of Investments Unlimited!)
Can I ask how the community handles Date Pickers? The GenerateDate action function doesn’t work for me because the field expects the user to select day, month and year from the date picker dialogue box. Date Pickers are commonplace so I can’t be the first to face this challenge, but I can’t find an answer anywhere?Thank you for any help you can offer. John

Hey everyone, so I have a question for all of you. Recently, I have started my first ever Meetup group and before that I already went to couple of developer meetups, but I was wondering what do usually expect on the Meetups you are attending (two standard talks + networking afterwards or just one longer presentation)? Also are there any testing Meetups you are attending/enjoying?
As the title states, what books would you recommend for one to read to improve in the field of testing ? These could be both technical and non-techincal. I saw in one reply that James Bach recommends looking into: Epistemology Philosophy/History of Science Sociology/Psychology Cognitive Science Rhetoric/Critical Analysis Certain branches of mathematics: statistics, set theory, discrete mathematics, combinatorics.Any suggestions regarding any of the above mentioned topics ? Thanks in advance :)
Wonderful People of the ShiftSync Community!We are looking for your input as practitioners on Test Data usage in the context of your testing work, and have launched an anonymous 3min survey to gather data on the subject.Even if you don’t use a lot of data in your testing, let us know, and share this with other colleagues you think might.Our results will be shared at a later time and will help us shape the future of product strategy, so this is a great opportunity to be heard.

Hello Community!I’m Paul, Head of Incubation under the Office of Strategy here at Tricentis. We have been working on an initiative called “Quality Engineering Perspectives”, a collection of topic articles and eventually subject-matter curated sections that provide vendor-neutral opinionated perspectives (see where the name comes from?) on how to develop, support, and improve Quality Engineering culture in organizations.We would love for you to contribute, either content or even just feedback, about our endeavor here. The goal is to provide useful educational material scoped to quality engineering for practitioners, managers, even executives. Since the appetite for detail is diverse across these audiences, each article summarizes and then digs a bit deeper on pros/cons, but isn’t to get too far into the technical nitty-gritty or hands-on how-to details.If you have even 15-30 minutes, we’d be more than happy to discuss one-on-one with you how you might contribute to this work. Feel free
Hey ShiftSync Community!I hope you're all having a great day. I recently came across a fantastic video on YouTube that discusses software testing and the importance of bug reports. Here's the link to the video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cgkhx7NqXCE&ab_channel=ResterTest.After watching it, I realized that writing an effective bug report is crucial for improving software quality and ensuring smooth user experiences. I believe it's a valuable skill for all of us in the tech community, and I'd love to hear your thoughts and advice on the matter.If you have experience with writing bug reports or if you've encountered bugs and reported them before, I would greatly appreciate any tips you could share. Here are a few questions to get the conversation started:What are the essential components of a good bug report? How do you effectively reproduce and describe a bug in your report? What additional information should be included, such as system details or error messages? Are there any b
Hi community, I have heard this many times: “Testers must be able to code”. Do you agree? In my latest video, I am sharing my point of view on this question. Do you agree? What is your experience on this topic?https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wurSKYq3Ot8Looking forward to reading from you.#HappyTesting
I’m new to games testing , so I was wondering if there are any tools out there which uses re-enforced learning or ML to navigate through the game ?The game is being developed in Unity and I know Unity has tools to script automated tests but I’m more looking for tools which automatically would be able to traverse the game. is there a tool out there which would do this?
I am a sales guy at Tricentis. I have a prospect asking me “what are the unexpected benefits of Tosca?” We have talked about all of the expected benefits (300% Plus ROI. Faster releases. Better quality releases. Increased risk coverage. Overall reduction in cost. etc) but she wants to get a feeling for the unanticipated value that her testers may experience.The list I have so far is:- you can use it for scraping data from websites and other applications. - it forces you to build modular vs monolithic test - You can use it for data loading- You can use it as a general purpose macro engine to tie together business processesAny other thoughts? What value have you gotten from Tosca that you weren’t expecting?
I want to ask a question that is both simple and complex to answer: How do you write your test cases?Why do I say it is simple?Well I mean according to some definitions testers write test cases and since they do it often it should be easy. Also there is a ton of information online on how to write a test case, what should it contain, so again, easy and simple.Why do I say it is complex?Well, a PM once told me that the tests should be written in such a way that a person coming from the street should be able to run them. I mean that is not impossible to do but it will take time, a lot of time. One has to find a way to explain concepts that are not really in the day to day dictionary ( API for example).I think that they want somenthing like this When tests steps are really clear - YouTube 16What do you think? How do you do it?
