Nicky Tests Software: Skill Development List

Skill Development List

After looking at Erik Brickarp's Skill Development List and talking about the idea with Göran Bakken. I decided to create a Skill Development List of my own on September 22 2015.

I've updated this list on 9 June 13 2017.  I'll aim to keep this up to date by updating current goals and adding new ones as I learn and progress.

Feel free to comment on this list by adding suggestions or telling me of a similar list you might have :)
