I sat down with James to talk about his approach in teaching the RST course. Some interesting behind-the-scene insight came out, including particular ways that James uses to give feedback to his students.
The first quarter of 2016 has been very busy for the Altoms, thus this is the first article on our retrospective.
The first month of every year is for presenting both retrospections and resolutions. We are starting with the retrospective, to remember how beautiful and challenging our 2015 was.
The week starting with October 26th I attended the courses Rapid Software Testing (3 days) and Rapid Software Testing for Managers (1 day). It was brilliant! I feel I learned so many from both the course material and the trainer James Bach. Further on I’ll detail three things I learned and find valuable, and also mention other things I loved in this course.
October has been a pretty busy month for Altoms: attending conferences and organizing two in one week is not an easy job. But one value that characterize us is teamwork, so we managed to get everything done and spend the last day of the month celebrating Halloween together.
September, the first month of autumn has come and go and the summer atmosphere was still felt in the air, as days were still long and warm.
But the Altoms didn’t waste any minute and were as active as usual: working and finishing projects, taking part in competitions and organizing the Autumn Camp together with other colleagues at Tabăra de Testare.
So let’s take them one by one.
July has been a wonderful sunny month and August hasn’t been less. Even though some of our colleagues have been enjoying their Summer holidays, we still celebrated anniversaries, finished projects and involved in new ones.
Long story short, read below! 😀
Summer holidays are here and thoughts might run away to beaches, sea or mountains. But, responsible as we are, we must also think about autumn, getting back to the offices and learn new things.
We, at Altom, think that everyone should learn something new everyday and also teach fellow testers new terms and techniques that could make their work flow easier. And we are doing this by organizing courses and conferences online and offline.
July, as the second official month of summer, has been a joyful one for the Altoms: anniversaries, team building, filming for the EuroSTAR’s TeamSTAR competition, but also a hardworking one: preparing the RST and RSTM for October, working on several projects and tutoring interns. This is the style that we like: work hard, play hard!
So, read our July story!
