I’m Rosie Sherry. I currently spend my time working on building up community and products for the software testing industry.
This includes running the Software Testing Club, a community of software testers. Producing The Testing Planet, bring awesome-ness content to software testers. The Ministry of Testing – software testingevents and learning opportunities. And last, but not least, creating a community of freelance software testers over at Test Ninjas.
I love the web and all the opportunities it brings.
Keywords that describe me: (lean) startups, communities, social web, business strategy, collaboration, coworking and software testing.
I’m married with 3 young kids. One of my biggest drivers is to achieve a work life balance for my family. This isn’t easy.
