Podcast Episode 72 – 30 Things Every New Tester Should Learn – 6 Years On

Welcome to another episode of the Testing Peers podcast, this time we have a slightly different show for you.

Regular host, Chris is joined by the wonderful Heather Reid, as we look back over the brilliant article Heather wrote back in 2017 – 30 Things Every New Software Tester Should Learn on the Ministry of Testing site.

Before we look back at Heather’s article, we talk about anything from our past online that we might find a little cringey.

Then we review the article, written almost exactly six years ago, talking through all 30 tasks, and Heather provides some insight into each task, as well as where she would make changes, remove or replace any task.

We cover a lot of interesting topics, and below are links to some of the things we discuss.

And finally, Heather’s blog

We hope you found the discussion useful and would love to hear your feedback.
