A Community Written Book

An Update: It‘s available on LeanPub!

The book is now available at LeanPub ➙ https://leanpub.com/softwarepeopleworkfromhome.

@MaikNog and I (@S_2K on Twitter) are preparing a community e-book, similar to Viv Richards’ (who agreed to contribute to this one. Yay!) wonderful “Around the World with 80 Software Testers“.

It’s entitled “Software People … Work From Home — Insights & Experiences From Planet Earth” and it will contain reports about life and work in these times of lockdown, personal limitation and remoteness. They are personal experiences, unfiltered authentic … and safe for work. 🙂 I would love each contribution to be easily seen as the work of a person, the human behind the words. This is intended to be a very humane collection of individual works covering one topic.

Folks have already promised to contribute material – and here’s a map marking the countries: https://drive.google.com/open?id=1riRbKTZMGdwShPZJ0f884CIbXFD2Vhli&usp=sharing

World map displaying countries with contributors to the book

If you identify as a software person and would like to contribute, we (@MaikNog and @S_2K) would like to hear (or read) from you — especially (but not exclusively!) if you’re not from one of the countries marked in that map.

All the best to you and yours — stay healthy (or a speedy recovery, should that be needed)

Update on 27th April 2020: The name changed, the map is updated and the description more precise..

Update on 10^th^ May 2020: Updated the map, now including Greece and Italy. Thank y’all!

Announcement: Workshop & ebook: “Fast Feedback Using Ruby”

At the “London Tester Gathering Workshops 2015” (also see #LTGWorkshops on Twitter) I offer a workshop “Fast Feedback Loops & Fun with Ruby”. For this, I wanted to give attendees a handout, to make applying the stuff covered easier and it was planned to be a list of brief recipes.
Suffice to say that the handout grew (and it’s entirely possible that this is ‘feature creep’ in action). In fact, it grew to the point that I decided to turn it into an ebook. The book is not done yet, there’s some copy editing to do.

Fast Feedback Using Ruby

In any case: There will be an ebook, and it will be available on LeanPub at https://leanpub.com/fastfeedbackusingruby/. If you’re interested, please leave a note on the book’s pages.
