A long pending blog post!
Feb 2010 saw the birth of a testing magazine from Software Testing Club (STC). It was an awesome magazine with lots of cool stuff from context driven testers across the world. Be it the nail biting moments of doing the right things at the right time or laughing at cartoons and making fun of oneself, it was truly Awesome! It struck me very late that I could have written one too without thinking about acceptance or rejection. I was late.
Tomorrow never dies. STC had started collecting articles for July 2010 magazine. I thought I should write one, but wasn’t really sure if it would work given my hectic schedule and health. I wrote one which eventually became a blog post as it did not go well with the spirit of the magazine. I churned out another one in a short span (record time!) and sent it to Rob Lambert without any expectations. A week later, my article was in!
Three pleasant surprises in the second edition of STC magazine. One, the magazine has a name “The Testing Planet”. Two, the magazine came out in newspaper format. It rocks. Three, the magazine was on print!
You can download the July 2010 magazine HERE
The first edition of STC magazine can be found HERE
High fives to the STC team - Rosie, Rob and many others for amazing team work!
Read and Rejoice!
Glad you liked the magazine. Great stuff to have content from you and thankyou for the kind words. It means a lot to us to have such positive feedback.
Thanks to you too Rob! It's been one of the interesting testing magazines that comes straight from the heart.ReplyDelete

Glad to read your post the " The Managing Tester" in the Testing Planet magzine. The thought was good.
I agree that testers need to grow in numbers as well as in terms of real core testing capability.But in Indian context organizations need managing tester kind of roles also to manage the testing testers.
Don't sulk as a managing tester.Rejoice as a testing Tester!--> To make this happen in huge numbers we need to have more number of independent test consultant practitoners in Indian context.
Once again thanks for your post in Testing Planet.
Also I would like to inform you and other software testing professionals that there is one more Magazine for professional testers named testing experience.
As they had quoted like -the magazine for professional testers,the magazine is more professional
