Why I’m launching a software testing jobs board — update: Nearly there!
The TesterJobs.co site is nearly ready for the beta launch — moving from Coming Soon mode to a public beta.
There’s been a lot of tasks to manage and I found the combination of a JIRA project (lots of tasks! and some bugs) and a collection of Google Sheets, the ideal way to keep track of all the information, data, knowledge and procedures that I was busy setting up.
Now that the move to public beta is nearly here, I’m also using an old trick that I think must go back to my days of using Unix years ago, that is of keeping the checklist document as a simple text document — not using vi but a simple TextEdit doc in plain text. As I complete each task I just mark it down as DONE at the start of the text line and can easily see what’s been done and what still needs doing.
