Association for Software Testing Board of Directors report - February 2024

Publication date Read time 1 min Tags AST

In my Association for Software Testing 2023 elections proceedings I advocated for transparency. In the spirit of practising what I preach, this blog post summarizes my work for AST in February 2024.

  • Fixed a problem where email sent to Group is not distributed to all members of that Group. Google support was not particularly helpful, although I must note that there was actual human involved, and she did try. A fix involved changing the way our Wordpress site is sending emails. Documented everything internally.
  • Pushed migration (see previous report). Wrote down all cost saving opportunities and action items, assigned these to other Board members. Not all items are resolved yet.
  • Fixed a BBST Graduates list page. There were some strange things in HTML that caused Wordpress to parse it badly, and in turn it displayed all wrong.
  • Fixed a problem of periodic posts on LinkedIn displaying black box instead of YouTube video preview.
  • Updated internal dictionary / documentation of shared email accounts
  • Monthly Board of Directors meeting.
