We are back with our next edition of the newsletter. We got some solid feedback from the community members on the last few newsletters based on which we thought we should do some changes in how we bring the newsletter to you.
This is a new attempt and we hope to get your feedback on how this format looks to you.
As you might recall, discord was the new home for the Test Tribe’s community last year (around this time). It feels great to see that we are about to touch 3000 members (just 20 short as I write this) on Discord.
The discord community is buzzing on discord and is discussing some interesting topics.
Top Community Discussions
Be it the framework to build a good testing strategy or choosing the right tech stack for automation, the community discussed everything. A member wanted to know the best source of learning automation and the community just buzzed with others. Another one wanted to know the things to take care of if they wanted to organize bug bashes at their workplace.
Top Upcoming Events
Speaking of bug bashes, Cignithon – a virtual testing hackathon powered by Cigniti Technologies, is back for its 3rd Edition on 28th-29th May 2022. The last edition saw more than 380+ participants vying for INR 2,00,000+ prize pool. It has already got more than 75+ registrations in less than a week, this time. (Last year’s round-up video is here)
Cignithon is not the only event we are doing in May; there are other super interesting lined up for this. On 7th May, we are hosting Cristiano Cunha for a Webinar on The New Performance Game. Also, on 7th May only, we are starting the next batch of the Automation Test Design Bootcamp by Robert Sabourin. Rob needs no introduction and is a widely respected teacher in the entire testing community.
On 21st May, we have two exciting sessions. One on Freelancing for testers by Ambika Kulkarni and the other on Benefits of CI on Automation Practices by Soumya Sridharamurthy.
But before you jump on to may, don’t forget to check out this one-day workshop on Load Testing Using JMeter by Sandeep Garg happening this Saturday. The Workshop is priced super-modestly to facilitate learning for everyone.
Do you want to know how this workshop was put in place? It’s an exciting story. Sandeep did a Webinar with us on Load Testing in February, and the members so well took it that it was stitched into a 1-day workshop.
