This seems like a great idea to me. Too often within the testing community I think we focus too inward, be that within the company we work for, or the testing community that is immediately around us. I met some great people at this years’ Eurostar who I never knew existed before, primarily because they were not from the UK and therefore not part of the UK testing community.
A survey which allows us to get a wider view of our profession and our community can only be a good thing in my book. It can help us understand our joint challenges far better, and to set the future direction. I’ll be a part of the survey and I hope you will be too.
The survey is not currently open but it will be soon. You can find out more information at the QA Intelligence blog.
Note: I’m not affiliated with the survey or those running it, I think the survey is a good idea so I’m supporting it.
