Guys of “PractiTest” and “TeaTime with Testers” with serious advisory board: Jay Philips, JeanAnn Harrison, Rajesh Mathur, Ben Linders, Justin Rohrman, and Jerry Weinberg – are doing that again – organising survey to get a picture of current state of testing.
We all are curious how fellow testers are doing in other side of globe or next door. Here is link to results of survey from the last year. Interesting, right? But if you are attentive than will notice that 1000 participants is great, but to be able to do qualitative analysis, it is not enough. How to change it? Participate! And send a link to your colleague as well!
The organisers write that it will take 10 or less minutes to fill the survey . I timed my input – it took me 23:22 to fill it, including looking for currency calculator and tweeting about question 22.
Why do I support this survey by writing blog post? Because I like data. Last year there were at least 1000 testers who take their profession serious. How many will be this year?
