A Sole Tester

Many years ago I led a fantastic team of testers. Together we were able to plan and execute testing in a rapidly moving environment. Our skills and experiences were varied and complimentary. Most usefully we had skilled people who could cover our absences.

More recently I’ve been grappling with the unique challenges that come from working as the sole tester in a development team. The additional pressure to plan and execute testing efficiently. The unmovable fact that your skills are the only tester skills available. Whilst the learning opportunities are huge you’re likely to find yourself relying heavily on the (fantastic) testing community to support you through the testing challenges.
