What do you think of when you hear the phrase “context-driven testing community”? Our perception of the community is shaped by our experiences - the people that we choose to interact with and the ways that we choose to engage with them. Perhaps we see a close-knit support network or a friendly debate team, but others might hold a different perspective. There are testers who are fearful of joining our community. There are others who think that context-driven testing is simply about being against ISTQB or ISO29119. Some testers were once part of the community but have withdrawn due to their own poor experiences, or their interpretation of the experiences of others. Is this okay? But what would we lose by presenting a friendlier face? The community has been shaped by the idea that “no one is entitled to an unchallenged opinion”. Perhaps a culture of challenge and exclusivity is essential for deep conversation that leads to the development of excellence. Let’s talk about our community, what we value and how we can improve. Let’s consider how we interact with one another and communicate our key messages. Let’s leave this session with practical ideas about how we can each contribute to improving, explaining and marketing the context-driven testing community.
