Editorial – 2010 – October/November
The first issue of Testing Circus was received with warm welcome from the software testing community. The effort of small Testing Circus team was appreciated by many. The official subscription list has nearly tripled since the first issue was published and the number is increasing every day.
Many of the topics that we publish in this magazine are already available in the internet in some form or other. We wanted to give our readers selected content on basics of software testing. We wish to make Testing Circus – a magazine for masses, not for pundits. No philosophical topics, no pedantic subjects – we would like to give you something that is useful at the ground zero of software testing. We are targeting those who test, not who speak on testing.
We are late in publishing our 2nd issue of Testing Circus. It is because we are still a small passionate group of testing professionals committed to our day jobs in different IT companies. The Testing Circus is an output of our combined effort that we spend after our office hours. We do not have an office or a publication house. We are connected by our passion for software testing. We are committed to give Testing Circus free of cost to our readers.
Testing Circus needs more volunteers from software testing community. We need more writers who can give us content suitable for basic levels of software testing. We also need one representative from each IT organization where testing is practiced as an independent activity different from development. These volunteers will help us in bringing in more testers to Testing Circus; to read, contribute and to share knowledge. We will publish a list of volunteers in this magazine.
We received lots of feedbacks on our first issue. We have tried to implement lots of suggestions in this issue. Few readers did not like one or two sections in the magazine. We have limited the content in those sections. It is your feedbacks that will help us improve day by day, issue by issue. Please send us your suggestions – what you like and most importantly what you don’t like.
One of our fellow testers, Chandrasekhar B N is suffering from Blood Cancer. Please donate your half day salary for his treatment – if possible. Testing Circus team wishes him a speedy recovery. Meanwhile enjoy the 2nd issue of Testing Circus. Jai Ho Testing!
