About this Blog

Welcome to iTesting, a Blog written by Colin Cherry.

As of December 2018 this Blog is no longer focused purely on software testing. I will leave those blog posts that are still popular, but will delete those that I believe are no longer relevant (ours is a fast changing industry and some topics are no longer of consequence).

From now on I will be shifting my focus to another of my other passions – maintaining physical and mental health. This will be approached from the perspective of my lifetime of experience in these two topics. I have been involved in sport for over 50 years and still play tennis, squash, badminton and golf. I also cycle regularly while also teaching strength training classes several times a week. My mental health interest comes from growing up with a Mum who suffered from regular bouts of paranoid schizophrenia and depression. In my experience mental health issues are widely misunderstood; I will try and provide insights into coping and supporting family and friends.

Please feel free to provide feedback on any post.

  1. Hi
    I am Ma’ayan from PractiTest. Our Testing related blog QA Intelligence together with Tea Time with Testers Magazine, has launched its annual “State of Testing” Survey of 2016, which is the largest survey worldwide of Testers and QA Managers alike.

    We aim to identify the existing characteristics, practices and challenges facing the testing community in hopes to shed light and provoke a fruitful discussion towards improvement.

    We’ve got dozens of bloggers and industry leaders helping us spread the word to the worldwide QA community about the survey, and we’d be delighted to have you join the success.

    How can you help?

    Write a post on your blog or website pointing to the survey page: http://qablog.practitest.com/state-of-testing/
    Once you have created your post just reply to: maayan@practitest.com with a link to it and I’ll add you to the list of collaborators on the site as well as the final results report.

    In addition to this, I will also send you the results of the survey a couple of days before making them public giving you access to incredible data available only to collaborators.

    Of course I encourage you to share the survey on your professional social accounts and with colleagues as you see fit. (#StateofTesting on Twitter)

    Hope to hear back from you on this as soon as possible.

    Thank you.

  4. Well, there you go – how refreshing it is to read some actual sense around testing. It’s nice to finally realise that someone does share my views and opinions. I can only hope others sit up and take notice.
