Communities are important in professional circles to provide a safe space to network with other professionals with similar interests and share and learn best practices of the profession and stay updated on the latest trends in your field.

In the same vein, as a Software Quality Assurance Professional, it is important to plug into a community where you can network with other Software Testing professionals, get acquainted with best practices and latest trends in the testing domain, and get opportunities to share your knowledge and be visible in the field.

While there are a lot of tech communities for people working in a technology-based career in Nigeria and Africa, a lot of these communities seem to be focused on Software Engineering – Programming Languages, Frameworks, Company-affiliated, specialization, you will hardly find communities focused on Software Testing or Quality Engineering.

In this blog post, we share our recommendation on the prominent and active testing communities to join in Nigeria.
