Time to give something back…

It’s been a tough year for me with highs and lows. And to keep it short for a change, I’m coming right to the point.

With the amazing support of a great group of people, Kristine and I were able to launch the first TestBash Germany. And at the end, who would have thought in the beginning, we were also making some profit for the Ministry.

Apart from some TestBash tickets for myself and finally a Pro Dojo account, I gave most of my share to the scholarship program of the Ministry of Testing to do more great stuff and support the future generation of badass testers.

I won’t know who will benefit from this donation, and this is fine for me, as I prefer to stay in the background anyway. But I want to make one donation that is in my control. I got myself one ticket to give away for the Mother of all TestBashes in Brighton on March 16th 2018.

Please use the comments on this blog to apply yourself or suggest somebody else for the conference day ticket. Please give a good reason, why you or the person you suggest would deserve to visit TestBash Brighton 2018.

You can apply or suggest someone for the ticket until January, 7th 2018. I will decide who will get the ticket by January, 13th 2018.

What I want in return? Nothing. It would be great to see a blog post from that person’s TestBash experience, but you don’t have to. All I expect is that the person shows up and has a great day at TestBash Brighton.

Disclaimer: This is only the admission for the conference day of TestBash 2018 on March 16th in Brighton, UK. No travel or accommodation included. I decide who gets the free ticket.

If you don’t want to publicly share your story, why you think you deserve the ticket, you can share it with me at info (at) testpappy (dot) com.

UPDATE: Thanks to the amazing Danny Dainton and Matthew Parker who throw in an additional £150 to cover a good part of travel and accommodation costs.


And the winner is… Samantha Flaherty.
