    I am Ma’ayan from PractiTest. Our Testing related blog QA Intelligence together with Tea Time with Testers Magazine, has launched its annual “State of Testing” Survey of 2016, which is the largest survey worldwide of Testers and QA Managers alike.

    We aim to identify the existing characteristics, practices and challenges facing the testing community in hopes to shed light and provoke a fruitful discussion towards improvement.

    We’ve got dozens of bloggers and industry leaders helping us spread the word to the worldwide QA community about the survey, and we’d be delighted to have you join the success.

    How can you help?

    Write a post on your blog or website pointing to the survey page: http://qablog.practitest.com/state-of-testing/
    Once you have created your post just reply to: maayan@practitest.com with a link to it and I’ll add you to the list of collaborators on the site as well as the final results report.

    In addition to this, I will also send you the results of the survey a couple of days before making them public giving you access to incredible data available only to collaborators.

    Of course I encourage you to share the survey on your professional social accounts and with colleagues as you see fit. (#StateofTesting on Twitter)

    Hope to hear back from you on this as soon as possible.

    Thank you.
