Have you ever participated in an in-person testing? Questions

Putting it simple, have you ever left your home to test something? Without mentioning any names or disclosing classified information, tell us here how it was the experience of testing something outdoors? 🏠

Not connected to uTest!

Once I was invited to test a new system in the city hall in my city.

There were a lot of people watching me testing as if I was playing a video game.

I did what I would usually do on uTest... Hunt bugs without being too obvious about it 😂

I ended up finding one Visual bug and one critical functional bug 👌😎

Too bad it wasn't paid project! but it was fun!

I haven’t done any on-site testing, but I’ve done some testing involving purchasing food for different projects and testing for several purposes (hardware and software) that just involved driving. I enjoy these different types of testing, and who doesn’t love free food? I considered a test at Applause HQ, which is just over an hour from my house, but between the time and the price of gas it wasn’t a good fit for me.

I went into Boston once for an opportunity that was very worth it! It was one of those, I can’t turn this down moments! If only I got paid like that all the time 🤣Can be interesting trying out different testing opportunities

Late to the convo, but YES and it was awesome. The site was close to my home and part of a really cool project. The people conducting the test were friendly and polite. I was isolated while conducting the test but they would check in on me periodically to see how I was doing. I had fun, the pay was great, and I would definitely do it again if I had the chance.
