The Ministry of Testing Dojo is the home of all our learning material that are guided by our five learning principles. Here you can find all sorts of material to help you learn more about Software Testing such as:

  • Courses - Collections of structured, activity driven lessons that provide an engaging environment for you to learn new skills, knowledge and abilities in Software testing. You can learn more about taking a course here.
  • Talks - All our talks from every TestBash have been recorded and added to our catalog for you to view and learn from.
  • Articles - We also feature regular articles written by members of the Testing community that share ideas, experiences and thoughts across a wide range of topics in Software testing.
  • Webinars - All our Masterclasses and Ask Me Anything webinars that we host on a montly basis have been recorded and stored on the Catalog as well for you to review.
  • Podcasts - We also host regular podcasts such as the Ministry of Testing podcast and Tester's Island Discs which offer an opportunity to not just learn about testing but about the people in the Testing community.
  • Other resources - We're always experimenting with mediums and ideas and the results of those can be found in the other resources. Such as comics, one off podcasts, talks from meetups and useful resources for you.

All this content is accessible to Pro members with limited access for Club members.
