To raising the testing Bar

Who am I?
Who AM I
What about you
I'M NOT AN EXPERT,
I DON'T HAVE ANYTHING WORTH SHARING
IT IS A JOURNEY
a person who has a comprehensive and authoritative knowledge of or skill in a particular area
"I see myself somewhere between apprentice and the journey to expert"
24 years testing experience
"I don't consider myself an expert tester... There's so much I don't know and haven't yet experienced in my field"
21 years testing experience
"The more I learn, the more I realize how much I don't know"
How do we do it?
You don't have to do it alone
You don't have to spend $
Learn from mistakes
So what can we do
In our workplaces

With other team members - explain what testing really is, how you do it, debunk myths, be an advocate for good testing
Why am testing this?
James Bach' Critical thinking heuristic: Huh? Really? So?
Attend an existing chapter: India, Americas & Australia/New Zealand
START A LOCAL CHAPTER:

Starting a new Meetup
Is there interest?
What is the aim of the group?
Register on meetup.com
Leverage social media
Have a low key first meeting
You don't need to be an expert
20 years testing experience
An expert is a label put on you by other people. I always have new things to learn and improve on
33 years testing experience
I do not consider myself an expert. But many other people have told me that I am an expert. I claim to have experience (wide variety)
25 years experience
I think that part of both becoming and being an expert is in having as much passion about sharing your expertise as you do about gaining that expertise.
