Its not mandatory to involve company where SME is working. GSDC encourages companies to support volunteer SMEs by providing the time off from work to attend in-person workshops and virtual meetings, assisting with the travel costs associated with in-person workshops, etc. In some cases, companies have hosted GSDC test development workshops, arranging for meeting spaces, Internet connectivity, meals, and discounted hotel rates for traveling SMEs. While GSDC greatly appreciates organizations that support our volunteer SMEs, we cannot provide specific financial incentives to those companies as it risks a conflict of interest.
Yes. Based on request SME identity can be kept confidential.
