Today I’m talking to Rosie Sherry. She runs Ministry of Testing, a thriving community for software testers.

Software testers are people who test software application and websites. They test the user experience and check that all features are working properly and that there aren’t any foreseeing risks or vulnerabilities. Testing is an extremely important piece of the puzzle when you build a product.

Rosie has built up this membership community with free and private areas, courses, and organizes a lot of conferences. We talk about what is testing, what’s involved, and how she’s been able to build a thriving community over the past several years.
