TLDR; New patreon bonus - pdf collation of posts monthly and more micro course content.
In case you missed it here is a summary of January 2019, blog posts, some notes and patreon roundup.
The content on Patreon is accessible for only $1 a month at patreon.com/eviltester. Supporters gain access to downloadable PDFs of the content and micro courses e.g. How I Test - Web App, Test Ability Audit and more
I’ve been creating daily content on Patreon and trying to find a way of making it more accessible. The Patreon interface isn’t particularly good for ’lots’ of content.
I have also written some code which parses the extract and can create a PDF.
This means I’ve introduced two new Patreon benefits which are accessible for only $5 a month (about 17 American cents per day):
- a monthly pdf extract of the Patreon posts
- a monthly pdf extract of blog posts
Its suprising just how much content you can create in a month.
For January the blog extract is a 21 page A4 document and the Patreon extract is over 100 pages.
I will gradually work back through the 2018 posts and retrospectively create monthly summary documents for 2018.
Blog Posts For January 2019
I have not listed videos separately, any YouTube videos I create will now have associated blog posts, so the blog posts below should contain all the content.
- Patreon for Software Testing and Development
- Pro Con Critical Evaluation - but What If?
- How to install Bonobo Git Server On Windows
- How to convert SVN Subversion to Git on Windows
- What is Boundary Value Analysis? Software Testing Technique explained with real world examples.
- How to download a file with RestAssured
Most of the above have received additional content and analysis on Patreon.
