Webinar: The Evil Tester’s Guide to Technical Testing

So I was sitting on the bench and I thought of what would be a good use of my time. I headed over to udemy and tried out Alan Richardson’s free course on Technical Web Testing 101. Aside from the content, I like how he explains and how some of his testing values/ideals seep through. And off topic, yeah, I really like his Irish accent.

At the appendix of the course, he posted his Evil Tester’s Guide to Technical Testing Webinar. It’s available in YouTube as shared by the organizers of the webinar. You can also find it in the evil tester’s blog post on the same topic. It’s better to check out his blog post as it also includes the SlideShare presentation of his slide deck along with links to tools and other references for further reading.

I’m embedding the video here as well. Do check it out, and see if being a technical tester is something that you aspire to (I hope it is).
