Inviting is the antidote. Seeing people.

I haven’t submitted for conferences in years. I got started speaking because someone (local) asked me to. I talked to hundreds of aspiring speakers, put special effort in helping people who look different than majority and different than me. Sought to enable folks on geography.

What, in your experience, keeps (diverse set of) people from submitting?

I can't be the only person who finds conference cfp submissions to be off on where they allocate the work of building great contents. To make hundreds of people to spend days in efforts of blind writing to select a handful feels such a waste of good people's time.

Experienced today: silenced with a 5-minute timer in a team interview for a new developer. Taught nice facilitation mechanisms for controlling us loud voices to the team.

The exploratory testing article pulled us in to find this gem. Thank you for explaining this so nicely.

Dear conferences, don’t send emails out with the title “Invitation to become a speaker” and then have “Call for Papers submission” in the text of the emails. It feels underhand. Be honest in the email title

I gave a conference seeking technical talks a challenge. Give me a topic and I tell you a not man who should speak on it. Asking folks to submit around is just lazy.

I'm a strong proponent of extensive Exploratory Testing but there is still a role for automated testing. Automation is nothing without learning. But with learning, it's awesome. Learning while testing =

The worst automation I see is when we miss the idea that creating and maintaining automation has its roots in exploratory testing. I love how automation gives us exploration reach and how telemetry gave us that in scale. We’ve spent well.

+💯! I've been fortunate to work on agile teams over the past couple decades who valued & embraced exploratory testing (and testers!) & I have lots of insights from leading practitioners in our books & courses. Lots of other human-centric testing activities too.

We measure unit tests with code (line) coverage. I got to explaining how condition branch coverage is different and got introduced to avoiding complexity and how nicely things read without those complex conditions. My kind of fun.

I’ve been trying to find a better way of describing this. I see so much test automation that isn’t exploratory but also some that very clearly is.
