For the first time in the software testing space, the community has come together to contribute to the testing mindmaps where they share their testing knowledge through TestInsane's mindmaps platform. 100+ mindmaps with 25+ contributors from the globe are doing awesome work.

TestInsane Technologies Pvt. Ltd. introduces Testing Mindmaps, world’s first repository of visually represented information useful to software testers. MindMaps is an initiative of TestInsane as part of their open source contribution to software testers across the globe. Awarded Testing Startup of the Year 2015 at the India Testing Awards, TestInsane believes in giving back to the testing community and in the process, improving the quality of software testing through shared learning.

Founded in 2014 and based in Bengaluru, India, TestInsane is a software testing company that specializes in Exploratory Software Testing services for websites and mobile apps. The company’s core focal areas are functional testing, usability & accessibility testing, security testing and performance testing among more. MindMaps, the brainchild of TestInsane, was conceptualized a year ago to be a part of their Free and Open Source Apps Initiative.

Readily available online, MindMaps is a repository where testers can find unlimited information on various topics related to software testing. These are uploaded as source files on the portal that not only can be downloaded but can be edited to anyone’s convenience. “It is a huge knowledge base for any budding and passionate tester or developer to learn and apply the best approaches, methods, test cases and new ways of thinking,” said Karthik Kini, Vice President, TestInsane and developer of Testing Mindmaps. “Whenever I read a MindMap I learn something new myself and I am sure anyone who refers to them will find something new and unexpected as well,” he added.

With numerous contributions from testers across the globe, MindMaps facilitates a forum for budding and established testers to exhibit expertise as well as learn new ones. “What had begun as just an idea about a year ago has now been recognized as a crucial incentive for testers. Our initiative has attracted over twenty-five contributors from around the globe and we have received
about hundred plus contributions from them,” said Santhosh Tuppad, Founder, TestInsane.

Applauding TestInsane’s input to the testing field, James Bach, proponent of exploratory testing and founder of Satisfice Inc. wrote, “The wonderful thing about TestInsane is their MindMaps. More than 100 of them. What lovelies! I am working on a guide to bug reporting, and I found three maps on their site that are helping me cover all the issues that matter. Thank you TestInsane!”

Mindmaps is believed to be a platform that enables tester-recognition. “One of the main considerations while developing Mindmaps, was to give due credit to contributors. We really want to highlight them and their efforts, giving as much information about them as they want to share,” stated Karthik Kini.
