    This month’s Let’s Talk About Hangout will feature two great minds on the the topic of working as a self-employed tester.

    On February 25th, I will be joined by Duncan Nesbit and Simon Schrijver to discuss what it is like working for yourself as a software tester.

    We will discuss all the practical aspects of setting up, getting clients, what does an avaerage day look like, the advantages and disadvantages and more.

    So if you are interested in this topic you can sign-up here

    If are thinking of becoming an independent tester and have some questions before the Hangout starts, feel free to submit them here.

    I’d be interested in the networking aspect of it – how do you secure jobs – use a network of friends and colleagues, any internet sites, anything else? When to start looking on a 3, 6, 12 month contract.

    @ponnet That’s one question that I will definitely put to the guys.

    The Hangout will be streamed on Thursday live here or on Youtube.

    Not been in one of these things before – how do they work?

    Is this essentially talking about being a contractor or is an ‘independent ‘ or self employed tester something a little bit different?

    @paul-french These events are more like round-table discussion rather than a regular webinar. The Hangout has a loose format but what makes it a bit different is that anyone can jump in and take part and ask questions.

    If you have a question already, you can ask it here or join us live at 12 to ask yourself.

    There is more info here along with the stream of the session.

    It is that essentially

    I’m watching the stream at the moment – is that the proper way to view these things? I was half expecting usual “webinar” type format where you could chat and submit questions over text etc? First one I’ve attended so just making sure I’m doing it right 😉

    @paul-french There is no right way and no wrong way. So you’re doing it right! You can submit questions here if that is easier for you,

    OK, if I rephrase my question – is there a method of viewing with built in interactive chat boxes etc? Too late now but I’ll know for next time 😉

    An independent tester can find out more and different defects than a tester working within a programming team. If you have proper knowledge of coding & testing so it will be a nice career option.

    Afraid not, the main chat area is here. We are trialling different approaches with each Hangout to encourage the most interaction. We’ll get there. If you have any questions or thoughts @simonsaysnomore and @duncnisbet will check in and out of here to answer anything that you might have.
