Pi Day and IT professionals

Today it is 3-14, also known as π-day. As wikipedia states: Pi Day is an annual celebration of the mathematical constant π (pi). Pi Day is observed on March 14 (3/14 in the month/day date format) since 3, 1, and 4 are the first three significant digits of π.

A good moment to asses your skills. What profile can you adopt as a tester to meet the ever growing expectations and demands?  In IT we often talk about T-shape professional

The T-shaped tester (by Rob Lambert, Lisa Crispin and Janet Gregory) combines need for general knowledge with advanced test skills to be successful. But we thought it was time to expand the model. Therefore we introduced the π-shaped professional. The π-shaped tester extends his global knowledge (development, project management, agile etc.) and test expertise with yet another specialism to stay in demand, e.g. security, test automation, requirements.

Jan Jaap and I gave a tutorial for the EuroSTAR conference. We will be hosting the tutorial again on the testnet spring event on may 11th. But isn’t today a good day to ask yourself: What specialism do I want to add to my profile?
