Happy Day - Dragons Out! in English published today!

And here it comes, after what feels like a long journey of countless publication process actions. The Dragons Out! book is published today on July 30th, 2021. I can't describe how happy I am to be able to share this book with all the English readers in the world. It works for children and adults, for non-native and native English speakers.  Dragons Out! - a book about dragons, knights and software testing - is meant to be a fascinating, introductory book to the world of software testing. You get to read appalling fantasy stories about knights battling dragons, and children helping the valiant knights. While you read the stories, I also explain what they mean in the world of information technology and software testing. It is often easiest to learn by comparison.  There are interesting exercises about software testing, some involve drawing and some actual testing. There's also the supporting material for teachers here

Challenge to translate Dragon Lesson in Software Testing to all languages

Upon discussion in social media and many volunteer approaches to help in translating the Dragon Lesson in Software Testing into many languages, I decided to up the game. Let's translate the free Creative Commons presentation to as many languages in the world as we can, so that the presentation can serve as the easy first step to software testing for all the children in the world. So, let's target all the languages out there! The Dragons Lesson in Software Testing is an easy to present, visual (with Dragon and Knight pics by Adrienn SzĂ©ll!) PowerPoint presentation made for all the teachers in the world. It works as a 1-2 hours session, or more, at any class in school, as an extra-curriculum topic. I issue the challenge on this video . Already I have promises from volunteers in 10 different languages. And, the first translation is already uploaded to .  It was done by Olivier Denoo, in French. Thanks very much, Olivier!
