Workshop On Self-Education in software testing (WHOSE)

Over the weekend of December 5-7, 2013, a number of dedicated software testers, with the support of AST, held a Barcamp style Open Space event, with the goal to produce a skills inventory that is context driven. AST held this event with one requirement: to produce a first-draft skills inventory, licensed under creative commons with attribution or a similar (free/open) licensing model. The purpose of the skills inventory is to promote self-education; providing the reader with a place to start on how to learn software testing.

That document now exists as a wiki that anyone who wishes to read. More important, if you wish to edit and add to it, you can do that, too.

If you would like to contribute to the WHOSE project, please send an email to [email protected] and asked to be added as an editor.
