Top 5 Software Testing newsletters to follow in 2020
Are you looking for fresh and high-quality news on Software Testing?
Let’s face it, most of us don’t have time to scan through the web looking for the latest updates. Luckily, some great people do just that and publish completely for free!
Below you’ll find top 5 Software Testing newsletters to follow in 2020.
Software Testing Weekly is the newest newsletter, launched at the beginning of 2020. In each issue, you can find only the best 10–15 picks of software testing news. Every link is carefully selected and described with an insightful note, allowing you to easily decide on what to read. The newsletter includes a healthy mix of articles on testing, test automation and testing tools. And it’s published on Friday — the earliest of all the other newsletters.
So if you want to be the first one to hear the quality (over quantity) news that are hand-picked and delivered in a nice, personal way — this is the right choice for you.
Disclosure: I run this newsletter.
Testing Bits has been around for a few years already. Every issue includes tens of links to updates on software testing, automation, conferences and podcasts. It’s a great overview of all things going on in the testing world in one place. However, the links come as they are, without any description, so you need to choose a link basing on the title only. Unfortunately, there’s no email subscription available. You can only follow the RSS feed and social accounts.
So if you’re looking for a huge quantity of links to browse through and you don’t mind lack of description, you will like this one.
Ministry of Testing is one of the biggest online testing communities. Their main newsletter includes lots of links to various resources, ranging from testing and automation to podcasts and events. Many links are briefly described which helps to choose the right one to read. The issues tend to be quite long, but thanks to this everyone will find something useful there. Unfortunately, some links direct to paid content, causing rather a restrictive experience at times.
So if you’re looking for a mix of all sorts of links and you don’t mind paid content and waiting until Monday, you may find this one interesting.
Methods & Tools has been publishing since 2000 and it covers a monthly round-up of selected testing news. Some of the links are described, making it easier for a reader to choose what to read. If it comes to the design, well, the site may bring some nostalgia to those who remember the early days of the Internet when PHP was the king. 😊
So if you’re too busy to digest news weekly, you probably want to follow this one.
Five for Friday is a series of blog posts published weekly by Alan. His concise round-up covers five interesting — and often surprising — links that are not only related to software testing but also general software development, leadership and other things. Everything is neatly described and you can always find something unusual there. Sadly, no email subscription is available, but there’s an RSS feed.
So if you want a quick, digestible read — check out this one.
