The Agile Testers community is an online forum that has been around for more than 5 years, with almost 5.000 page views per day and almost 1.000 unique visitors per day. The community has more than 2.600 registered users and 5.000 posts about software development, test automation, technical articles and much more.
The Agile Testers Conference is a conference that pushes boundaries on the Brazilian Tech Community and pursuits a high level of subjects presented at its events.
Our conferences have a unique form of subscription, as we don’t ask for a direct contribution from the attendees. We ask for a donation to an institution that helps people or animals and after the proof of donation is sent, we confirm the subscription.
With that process, we were able to help a lot of NGOs that were struggling with money issues and the conference donations did a huge positive impact on their lives.
In 2017, we were able to raise more than 15.000 BRL (in 2016 we raised ~3.000 BRL) in donations and this year we are hoping that we can reach more than 20.000 BRL.
I am a hybrid software tester, who loves to be a developer every now and then.
I’ve been working as a software tester for more than 8 years. From black box tester to automation test leader, I played a lot of roles on quality assurance field. I consider myself a person who contributes to improving test expertise, rather than being labeled as just the QA guy, that sees the task done at the end of the process. In recent years, I focused on being more of a technical tester and developer than having an administrative position.
I also defend that all knowledge should be shared, so the community can grow. To do my part, I participate on the Brazilian SQA community like forums and email groups, doing some lectures on local software development events, such as “The Developers Conference” and “Test Day”. I also maintain a Brazilian web forum called “Agile Testers” (agiletesters.com.br) and two technical blogs: lazytesters.com (English) and keeptesting.com.br (Portuguese).
