Sneakers isn’t just one of the best hacker movies of all time, it’s one of the best movies ever. Full stop. The tale of a crew of outcasts with sketchy pasts who break into companies for a living (not a very good one), Sneakers has an all-star cast, a killer script, and a terrifyingly prescient story about information and its control over our lives in the modern age. This is Deciphering Sneakers.
How Rosie Sherry Built the Ministry of Testing into the World’s Largest Community of Software Testers
Today we get the pleasure to hear from Rosie Sherry - founder of the Ministry of Testing, the largest network of software testing professionals, and is the current Community Manager of Indie Hackers. Rosie began her career as a software tester in 2000 and began hosting her own casual, community events, which eventually resulted in the Ministry of Testing Community. In the beginning, she recruited volunteers in different cities to run local software testing events. Eventually, she decided to host a conference that resulted in 60 attendees, and has since skyrocketed to 9 yearly conferences earning $1.5 million in annual revenue. She discusses the challenges of growing a community and determining whether to buy or build community software. Eventually, Rosie outgrew this community, handing over her title as CEO, and discussed the hardships, challenges, and the emotional toll it takes to leave a community she built from scratch. She transitioned to the Indie Hackers Community and has continued to break out of her shell by speaking and educating others on the power of community.
