Working with fresh minds is always refreshing and so much fun! I got the chance to interact with some such enthusiastic and energetic people in my latest training at Misys, Bangalore. I led the QA Induction Bootcamp for the testers who were a pleasure to work with. We covered all the fundamentals of software testing, various testing techniques and practiced with some live exercises and applications. The agenda was not only getting them familiarized with the world of a software tester , but to get them to explore the amazing opportunities that lie ahead and basically start enjoying this wonderful profession. The best part was that we received some great feedback from the candidates at the end, they enjoyed the training and found it very relevant to the real experience within their teams.
I recently got connected to Edista Testing Institute – an initiative of STC-QAI in Bangalore, which led me to an opportunity to train a group of fresh minds for a career in software testing.
The 10-day long training included a detailed course on Software Testing , methodologies, STLC , Agile Testing , various testing techniques with practical hands-on exercises and some great quizzes and interactive sessions. It was an amazing experience coaching the young minds and driving them towards this great . The students also responded really well to the practical sessions and exercises conducted, and we had a great feedback for the complete batch. I wish them all the very best for all their future endeavors.
Agile needs continuous improvement and innovation , and we are striving for the same at my new workplace MetricStream, Bangalore. As a part of that, I was invited to conduct a session on some practical and easily adoptable agile practices.
Well what better than Innovation Games for that !
So we went ahead and did a 3-part practical training exercise session wherein not only did we learn about the Agile workflow , the basics on innovation games and how they fit into Agile , but also conducted practical group exercises with sample scenarios and user stories.
It was a great experience and received quite well. The participants were encouraged to take back the learning to their own scrum teams and try out the fun and quick games for conducting various Agile ceremonies.
