Alright, another blogpost about Software Testing, well, actually more about community networking. I am using Bluesky (the other Social Media alternative from X (formerly known as Twitter) and besides Mastodon) since a couple of months and it feels great, nice and interesting people and in my humble thoughts a good future ahead.

Well, so Simon Tomes from Ministry of Testing (MoT) wrote in his weekly testing news issue 435 about where all the folks who are into software testing gather around online (besides the MoT club!). So next to LinkedIn and Mastodon more and more people are joining Bluesky, so he did write a Bluesky thread (Bluesky link)and mentioned some people out of the community. And this is a great idea, to connect and follow folks I would not have discovered in this early phase of Bluesky.

As Bluesky is still an invite-only to also keep spammers and idiots out, this link will work for people who already have a Bluesky account: So for others, who are interested, I thought why don’t I write down the names and add them here in this blogpost.

Well, not only for others, also for me as we all know that a bluesky posting will be forgotten by time… 😄. So here we go, with no order or reason, just typing down the accounts mentioned in Simons posting (and incoming replies).

In case you wonder for what the „did“ in the URL below stands for, it is a Decentralized Identifier, you can read more on Wikipedia and on the internet like here from DockIO. And if people on this list below are missing, just comment below with a link to the profile and I will update the list.
