It is my contentment to let everybody know that I have won my first ever Testing contest. First and foremost, I should thank Mr. Santhosh Tuppad for ringing a bell to aware me of this contest. Also thanks to Mr. Praveen (one of the founders of 99tests.com), Mrs. Parimala and Mr. Bharath (co-Participant and winner of the contest)
My participation was a big learning experience. I had a time of my life, competing with each other but we have competed in raising the defects to make the product a bug free.
WOW!! Can I test in this way…. WOW!! This is awesome way of testing…. WOW!! Why I missed this scenario…
A lot of WOW!!S like this which made me a Sane Tester
How Sudhamshu transmitted from Insane to Sane Tester?
2007’ June 13th was my first representative day as an Insane Tester for an Organization. Where am I today?
Learnt a lot, met a lot of wholehearted personalities of Testing, read books, wrote blogs, tested numerous applications.
Many of my contemporaries/friends/peers ask me,
“Why you are always available in GTalk?”, “Why you always open Twitter?”, “When you work?”
Three years earlier, I was not having any answers for this, but today I have answers for all this and also for many other questions.
As a tester I get support from many of the testers like Pradeep, Ajay, Parimala, Dhana, Santhosh, Sharath, Manoj and a big catalog of testers who offered their much valuable support whenever i needed. That is why I will be always available in GTalk. Hope I can also be cooperative to some other testers.
As a tester, Twitter helped me a lot to be trained from the fellow tester tweets. That is why I always open Twitter and also I tweet my practices/skills too.
I don’t calendar for working because I can’t say this is not the accurate/exact time to work.
What I learnt from the Contest?
What is Bug Advocacy, does really my bugs are explicable / understandable?
What is Security Testing?
How can we think of ‘something different!!!’?
A lot of scenarios like these.
www.99tests.com is a great platform for all the testers, where they can learn a lot of about testing the application and also can earn the prize money.
