INDIA TESTING AWARDS: TestInsane is TESTING STARTUP OF THE YEAR 2015

We always knew that we were doing great work in software testing as a start-up and we believed in our work. I happened to receive call from Unicom and also an e-mail about the nomination of TestInsane for “Testing start-up of the year 2015” category. I did not respond to the e-mail, but again I received a call from Unicom to know about my decision. I spoke to one of the person from Unicom and I said, “We don’t want to participate in this because we already know that we are insanely awesome in our work and wouldn’t be nice if we don’t win the award”. But, again I gave it a thought and said “YES” for the nomination. We had to talk about our various work at TestInsane so that the jury members could decide on one winner. I was pretty confident that we shall win this award for sure because we had done great work for our customers and also software testing community in terms of open-source contribution by developing apps for testers to help them test better.

And on the day 24-July-2015, at 1700 hours India Testing Awards 2015 event started. It started with awards for various people in different categories of awards and when the time was to announce “TESTING STARTUP OF THE YEAR 2015”, I could feel goosebumps when TestInsane was announced as winner. I was very happy to receive this award and also we were very quick in getting here.

Thank you Unicom & Next Gen Testing for this award. This is special for us. We continue to do great work and amaze the world. Keep showing us the love :-)

Last, but not least I thank all our team members for making us capable of getting this award. Special thanks to Karthik Kini, Sandeep Tuppad and Ajay S Menon. We are awesome as a cool team.

Below are some pictures taken by me :-)

Launching War With Bugs – Season 1

Every time I participated in software testing competitions, I was excited! It was not about money, but passion to find bugs in the software that is given to test. Today, I am excited to host a testing competition globally where software testers around the world can test the software (web app or mobile app) and report bugs in our WAR WITH BUGS platform which will be launched in October. Currently, we are advertizing globally where software testers could submit a simple form at https://testinsane.com/warwithbugs/ and they will receive the invite once we are all set to launch the competition during October month of 2015. And yes, there can be only one winner and he / she shall get 100000 INR. Below is a quick illustration of WAR WITH BUGS. Please share across your network so that we can have fair enough competition between testers around the globe. If you are thinking, “Ah, let me not share it with my team”; then you could be already a loser 😀

Mode details will be released soon and you will have 1 month of duration to participate and report bugs in our platform. Are you game to fight bugs and win 100000 INR? Request an invite now.

QApp Beta – SOFTWARE TESTING QUIZ APP LAUNCHED – 500+ Questions

QApp Beta - Software Testing Quiz App Logo

QApp Beta – Software Testing Quiz App Logo

Before you start thinking and judging this app, I would love to say that — “THIS IS NOT A FUCKING CERTIFICATION QUIZ“. We believe that QUIZ is one of the way to learn about anything in fun way! I was thinking about quiz app for very long and finally after many years we have it here for the world. This quiz app was developed in order to help software testers learn about various testing ideas / tools / tips / tricks / people & communities and more. This is not a competition, but a learning tool where testers learn about various things and gain knowledge. I personally believe that, a tester can get to know many new things which can help him / her to test better. For instance, testers who do not know “What to search on Google?” this quiz app can be a guide where the options in the multiple choice questions will help the tester with search keywords and learn more. Isn’t this awesome? Yes, it is!

QAPP – Software Testing Quiz – by TestInsane – Made With Love

There are 500+ questions across,
Web application testing
Mobile application testing
Test Reporting
Bug Reporting
Bug Advocacy
Tools, utilities and web browser add-ons
People & communities
And more

And yes, its responsive. That means you can use it on your Android / iOS etc. devices as well.

The much more beautiful thing about this app is, the questions keep evolving across various topics which can help testers to acquire the knowledge. However, I want to be very blunt in saying that this quiz doesn’t help you to test better; you can test better only after processing the information in the quiz and implementing it in your testing activity. Without implementation & exploration, this information in the quiz app doesn’t help much.

So, what are you waiting for?

Go to http://qapp.testinsane.com/ (Made with <3)and have fun! And help us spread this by sharing this blog post on your social media pages.

Yeah, you heard it right. We launched TestLogue as a new initiative to make it fun for the Software Testing community / Test Enthusiasts / Freshers to go through the testing stories which could be technical, inspirational, motivational etc. We believe that visuals can do a lot to just plain content. We will be releasing series of stories including technical and non-technical through TestLogue comic series.

Watch out for many more stories across various topics. Learn through TestLogue is the new slogan for people who want to learn testing. And yes, somewhere this was inspired by what Robert Sabourin’s I-Am-A-Bug J Thank you Rob for inspiring the testing community always!

WORLD CANNOT IGNORE US

Its been very short time since we started. We never thought that world would start loving us and hating us for what we are doing. We have lovers and haters around the world. Yes, we say that in very much BOLD way. Many people around us doubted us, they thought we are foolish and stupid enough to be running a startup like Test Insane. We thank our lovers and haters both, because you motivate us and you push to our limits in terms of contributing to the Software Testing world and community. And every time you push us to reach the limits, we say —

FUCK, let’s increase our limits to do more insanely fucking awesome.

Many people told us, “Run your startup in this way and you can make more money”. And I was like, “I did not start Test Insane along with my cool team members to chase money, I know why I started!” We are here to shake the brains of Software Testing community with our work. If we wanted to make MONEY, we wouldn’t have chosen our PASSION; but anything else which could be our cash cow. HELL with the MONEY, we are here for a REASON and that REASON is “BEING HAPPY BY DOING WHAT WE LOVE TO” and that’s our vision. We love simple things in life and we wanted a simple vision. People laughed at us for the kind of vision we had, but that was funny for us because “It is our vision and that vision is not about people”. Period!

 

WHY DO WE EXIST?

  • We love to push the human race forward.
  • We want to make the lives better around us.
  • We want to give back to the testing community through our open source contribution.
  • We believe that we can do awesome when we have freedom.
  • We believe that the world is beautiful with LOVE
  • We love to share the love and that’s when we are happy!
  • We exist because we believe that we will be GREAT and we do not want to be AVERAGE!
  • We exist because it is not ONLY about Testing for us, it is about LIVING to the FULLEST!
  • Because there is so much sloppy testing in this world that only knows to make MONEY!
  • We exist because TECHNOLOGY seduces us.
  • We believe that there are no game changers, but game creators. We are here to create.
  • We exist because of the simple reason that WE EXIST and WE SHOUT LOUDER.

 

In short, world cannot ignore us no matter they love us or hate us. Because we are UNSTOPPABLE in terms of great work which we do. We are not just doers, but enablers.
