I’ve always felt that the test automation literature is a little … odd.On the one hand, you have the floofly high-level tutorial, written so that it applies to every test tool. By trying to apply to every tool, the tutorial isn’t specific enough to …

My presentation entitled “Cutting the Mustard: Striving to Become a Superstar Tester” has been accepted at the CAST 2010 Conference in August of this year.

… So we’re driving out to my daughter’s softball game in Hopkins, Michigan, and I choose to go straight instead of turning left at the shortcut. We’ve got plenty of time, and if I go straight I can turn past Sacred Heart Mission, which is a nicer dr…
