  • 1. Working With Passion
    By Tushar Joshi
    Infospectrum India Private Limited
  • 2. Independent Testing Project
    Once upon a time, we got an Independent Testing Project
    Resumes were sent for approval
    4 people were chosen
    One resume was exceptionally praised and hired for minimum one year.
    One person got
    Extra attention
    Extra praise
    Credit for grabbing the project
  • 3. Extra Attention - Reasons
    When asked why Product Manager chose that one person he said:
    This person is passionate about his work
    His experience in the technologies that we need is proven
    He is a problem-solver
    He has demonstrated good working and writing skills
    Product manager got only the resumes…
    How was he so sure about his verdict?
    How could the say that the person prove all the things mentioned by Product Manager?
    Was the product manager biased?
  • 4. Product Manager’s Technique
    For others, there were no interesting links
    For one person, the results were interesting
    In next few slides, let us discuss what the PM found about the candidate …
  • 5. Evidence of Passion
    He has a blog about Bugzilla: the tool we use for defect management
    He has started this blog 5 years ago
    He has posted interesting tips and tricks that only an experienced tester can do
    His passion reflects from his blog
  • 6. Evidence of Testing Experience
    It was found that NetCAT is a community testing program
    People have tested an open source software and submitted bugs
    He submitted 25 bugs in that program
    The bug reports were online to examine and they were neatly written
  • 7. Evidence for problem solving
    The questions he has asked on forums were 5 years old
    After one year, he has even answered two of his own questions
    He has helped some people by answering technical problems
  • 8. Evidence of testing documentation
    I saw he has contributed test plans to an open source project
    The test plans were on the wiki of the project
    The test plans were good and as expected from an experienced tester
  • 9. Evidence of technical writing
    He had contributed tutorials for an open source tool
    The writing was clear and to the point
    The history of that wiki page showed this person’s name
  • 10. Evidence of logical thinking
    He has added many presentations to Slideshare.com
    The presentation was about testing methods
    The points were original and interesting
    This reflects his passion.
  • 11. What about others?
    Were they not good?
    They may also be very good, but this person has already proved it
    Can’t this be fake and purposefully created?
    The internet pages were spanning 5 years back. People cannot make up or pretend for so long.
    But you agree that others may also be good!
    Yes, but we are dealing with internet, browsers and technology, and this person has used it with passion. This shows extra energy he is putting in his career
