Spotted in the Wild

 

This page collates other places around the web where I can be spotted.  It was created retrospectively as the number of sightings grew, so there may be others I haven’t seen or have forgotten about.  If you have spotted me or my blogs anywhere else, please let me know!  It’s great to be recognised by people that I respect and admire, and it really helps with the imposter syndrome too!  Send me a tweet or message about any other sightings.

 

For appearances at conferences and other events, see Speaking and Conferences.

Working Out Loud – An Interview with Angie Jones – mentioned by Angie Jones

Is there a speaker that you’ve never listened to that you really feel like, “I want to hear this person speak”.

Cassandra Leung. I think she lives in Germany now. She’s on Twitter and she blogs some as well and she has really interesting thoughts and perspectives. She’s fairly new to testing in general, which also gives a fresh perspective. She’s only been testing for a couple of years. She recently started speaking and I’m really excited to hear her. I think that we may both be at Agile Testing Days in Germany so I’m really looking forward to hearing her.

That sounds great. It was her tweeting and blogging that made you interested in watching or listening to her speak?

Yes, and she comes up with really thought provoking topics that make you sit back and give it some consideration. So I’m really excited about her and what she’s going to do in the future.

 

Testing Smarter with Katrina Clokie – mentioned by Katrina Clokie

Hexawise: What blogs would you recommend should be included in a software tester’s RSS feed reader?

Katrina: It’s worth checking out the Testing Bits that Matt Hutchison compiles each week on the Testing Curator Blog. It’s a good way to keep up-to-date with what’s happening in the community and discover new voices. Similarly you can subscribe to the Ministry of Testing Feed via RSS, but I find the content a little more variable as there’s no active moderation.

A prolific blogger who I really admire is Maaret Pyhäjärvi of Finland. Her blog, A Seasoned Tester’s Crystal Ball, is full of practical advice and insights. A few others that I read whenever I spot a new post are:
