Our SSL Certificate Expired, oOps!
I’m usually a late waker, I don’t do mornings, however this morning I had to be up to take a family member to the airport for 7 am. I reluctantly wake up at 6.40am and reach for my phone to see what is going on in the world, my usual routine, just less awake on this occasion! My Slack and the MoT Twitter are on fire with news of the site being down, and a few more accurate tweets regarding the cause being our SSL certificate had expired. I’m wide awake now! It’s 6.45am.

June Online Events

Testing Ask Me Anything - Shift Left, Shift Right - Marcus Merrell
We have a new Ask Me Anything live webinar on Tuesday 11th June at 8 pm UK time. This time we're talking about Shift Left, Shift Right.  

The Shift Left/Shift Right movements, much more than mere buzzwords, seek to "smooth out" the big testing hump that blocks releases, moving testing resources earlier and later in the SDLC. This gives you a more stable, predictable, and confident release process, and removes a lot of the mystery and uncertainty from the process of delivering value to your customers.

Once you've registered you could ask Marcus any question you might have, here are a few more examples:

  • We've all heard of Shift Left, but how do you define Shift Right?
  • What's the biggest barrier preventing dev teams from shifting the test process to the left/right?
  • What do you think will be the next big leap, enabling this shift? Will it be in tooling? Culture? Education?


Detroit Meetup Online - Being a trusted advisor as a tester with Elizabeth Fiennes 
26th June at 11.45pm UK Time. Testers are called on to give advice or information daily as part of their role. How can do we do that in a way that is in the best interest of our team and product without our natural bias getting in the way? Leveraging the concept of the trusted adviser is one solution to this.
