  1. Hi! Danielle’s blog, linked above, maybe lapsed? I tried the link and it took me to an advertising site with Japanese characters (I think).

    Thanks for the awesome information that you are compiling, great stuff. And good work pushing to get lovely interviews for women working in the testing field. At my office, there are lots more female QA’s than female DEV’s. It’s good to spread awareness of just how many software testers are women (lots of them!)
