Navigating A Career Path In Software Testing | MoT
Navigating A Career Path In Software Testing
By Melissa Eaden

When Testers have started on a career path, many have commented on various surveys that they “fell into testing”. It’s important to understand that a majority of Testers did not plan on pursuing a career in software testing. They often come with backgrounds other than Computer Science.

The typical paths for Testers often lead into Management, Program or Project Management (or PM/PO), Business Analyst, or even Development. These are typical growth paths in a lot of companies that want to make sure they keep on solid employees doing great work.

These days, the Tester’s role is changing and to stay relevant, you have to be willing to focus on more than the functional aspects of the application. To see an example of how the role of a Tester is changing, you only have to look at the Modern Testing Principles as one example. Testers will need to develop more specialized skills and knowledge about software development to keep up with the ever growing changes introduced by technology, business practices, and customer desires.

The key to working through this, if your company doesn’t have a career path for you, or one that you like, is to come up with your own. A career path can take on many aspects of the current job, like learning more about the application’s domain. When you want to take your career to the next level, you’ll want to figure out what skills you can learn to keep yourself relevant and take you to the next level in your career. An example might be learning how to use the command line more effectively, or learning how to read and write SQL queries. If you look for the “gaps”, basically places in the application which are not well known or tested, you’re likely to find a skill you can learn and use.

Coming up with your own career path in testing requires you to be creative and adaptable. There are a lot of options out there if you look. This requires learning about tools, code, techniques, and different kinds of testing. If you are looking at other types of testing besides functional testing (or manual testing as it’s sometimes called), then you are already on the right path for career growth.

Bluetooth Low Energy: A Primer | Interrupt
You’ve probably heard the term IoT (Internet of Things) many times, and seen the hype in the media surrounding it. Simply stated, IoT refers to connecting devices to each other and to the Internet. IoT often depends on wireless technologies, which have been used to add connectivity to a slew of devices that were never connected before (even flip-flops!).

In today’s post, we will be covering one of the most popular low-power IoT technologies: Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE). We will give an overview of how BLE works, dig into each protocol layer, and walk you through an example setting up BLE on a Nordic nRF52 microcontroller.

Python Patterns
It’s time for me to start writing up, in one place, my ideas about Python programming patterns that are currently scattered across all of my Python conference talks and writing.

One reason is that, after all of these years, my Python Design Patterns talk from 2012 is still one of my most popular — despite conference video problems that forced me to cut 20 minutes of material! Another is that written material is easier for other programmers to search, browse, and reference, and can be corrected and improved as time goes on.

pre-commit
Git hook scripts are useful for identifying simple issues before submission to code review. We run our hooks on every commit to automatically point out issues in code such as missing semicolons, trailing whitespace, and debug statements. By pointing these issues out before code review, this allows a code reviewer to focus on the architecture of a change while not wasting time with trivial style nitpicks.

As we created more libraries and projects we recognized that sharing our pre-commit hooks across projects is painful. We copied and pasted unwieldy bash scripts from project to project and had to manually change the hooks to work for different project structures.

We believe that you should always use the best industry standard linters. Some of the best linters are written in languages that you do not use in your project or have installed on your machine. For example scss-lint is a linter for SCSS written in Ruby. If you’re writing a project in node you should be able to use scss-lint as a pre-commit hook without adding a Gemfile to your project or understanding how to get scss-lint installed.

We built pre-commit to solve our hook issues. It is a multi-language package manager for pre-commit hooks. You specify a list of hooks you want and pre-commit manages the installation and execution of any hook written in any language before every commit. pre-commit is specifically designed to not require root access. If one of your developers doesn’t have node installed but modifies a JavaScript file, pre-commit automatically handles downloading and building node to run eslint without root.

Home | Tech Co-op Network
Tech Co-op Network is the network of North American tech worker co-ops: worker cooperatives that provide media, communications, and computer technology goods and services. All are welcome!

We catalyze collaboration and mutual support among our members, while educating, encouraging, and supporting would-be cooperators and the general public. We subscribe to the International Co-operative identity, values, and principles. Many of us work primarily with progressive, nonprofit, and social change organizations as a part of our individual commitments to environmental, economic, and social justice and sustainability.

With a blend of partnership, federation, and friendly co-opetition, Tech Co-op Network makes visible and strengthens the vertical and horizontal connections among tech worker co-ops in North America (US, Canada, Mexico, Central America, and the Caribbean).

Levels of Us Vs. Them | Gilad Peleg
The levels of "Us Vs. Them" that I see are:

Me Vs. You: The leader sees himself above everyone else, including his subordinates.
Us (Team) Vs. Them: The leader sets his team to be Us while everyone else, including peers and peer teams, is Them.
Us (Group) Vs. Them: Even though the leader does not necessarily manage the group, that includes peer teams, he sets a mentality that the group is Us and other groups in the organization are Them. The success of the group is important to the leader, almost as much as the success of his own team.
Us (Organization) Vs Them: While not necessarily being the head of the organization, the leader instates that the organization is Us while competing companies are Them. Leaders in this position are naturally recognized as distinct encompassing leaders in their organization, providing value and leadership not only to their teams, but to their peer teams, and other groups in the organization. This leadership level is extremely rare to come by, or to reach. Smaller organizations, startups for example, have a strong inclination to attract or create leaders at this level, while large organizations deter these kinds of leaders.
Us (Industry) Vs Them: Industry leaders can create an effect far greater than their own organization, attracting people from all kinds of industries and professions to join their industry or profession. These are very unique kinds of leaders, that besides their usual job of CEO or other high ranking position, also create a positive vibe for their whole industry. Think about visionaries such as Steve Jobs, attracting people both to tech industry, but also paving the way for designers, creating beautiful user experience for customers.
