Hey there,

Monthly Testing Report Oct 2015I’m very happy to be here again in October Software Testing Report to tell you great stories, events happened around the world.

Last month, there’s a reader contacted me and asked me about how much effort for me to prepare such report. Well, it often takes me one or two days to preview and consolidate the news, articles before publishing. I know that that’s considerable amount of time for such a free report. To be honest, I’m not 100% sure how much my monthly testing report provides values to you because I haven’t received much feedback from you.

So if you have any ideas, comments or things to tell, I would love to hear that. Comment right below this post or just send me an email at thanh[at]asktester.com.

Anyway, let’s jump right into this month report.

AskTester Update:

I’m proud to say that October was a good month with me and AskTester. I published two posts:

One is where I shared my best online resources to learn software testing and the other post is Monthly Testing Report for September.

These two posts took me more time to write because I would like to put more effort and to commit to write useful articles for readers only. So if you like these two posts, please fee free to share them with your friends too.

Also, some of interesting questions were asked on AskTester community. Check them out if you have the same problems like askers or if you have the solutions to their problem and would like to share.

That’s all for testing report for October. See you again in next month report!
