Editorial – 2011 – September
Last one year has been a great learning experience for us. When we look back and compare our first issue last September (2010) with our annual issue last month (August 2011) we see a sea change in our content and concept. Our readers, article contributors, our competitors were the compasses who guided us to show the right direction with some timely helps, advices and criticism. The journey so far has not been smooth.
We did (or did not do) few things that stands us apart from other magazines in our domain. One – we tried to keep our articles as practically useful as possible. Lots of articles were rejected because we thought those will be just academic articles that will not have any use in practical software testing. Two – we tried to give chance to novice article writers in software testing. We groomed new contributors, edited and re-edited their articles, asked them to learn from these activities. Three – we listened to our readers and tried to make Testing Circus as participative as possible. We removed few regular columns and introduced new ones. Four – we collaborated with testing conferences and published free announcements about testing conference in almost every issue. Five – we never lied about our number of subscribers. We honestly reported our numbers, never inflated clicks that we get in our site. We understand that testers are intelligent enough to know and verify about these numbers. We also avoided publishing already published articles as far as possible.
I would personally like to thank our core team members, all assistant editors and support team for the marvellous journey so far. We are looking for passionate people to join us. Write to me if you want to join and work for Testing Circus. At Testing Circus we believe that we need more effort to put in and miles to go before we sleep. We know “no one can climb a smooth mountain” and we have more mountains to conquer.
Thank you for being our reader and well wisher. Enjoy our 1st birthday issue.
