Another fun entry from Aaron Scott’s Two Leaf Clover cartoon. Admit it, you’ve been on projects like this. I think anyone who has ever been involved with testing for longer than a few years has at least one doozy of a story where we go back and ask ourselves "OK, really, what were they thinking?!"

While I don’t typically go out of my way to out my companies and the issues over the years, there

For almost a year now, those who follow this blog have heard me talk about *THE BOOK*. When it will be ready, when it will be available, and who worked on it? This book is special, in that it is an anthology. Each essay could be read by itself, or it c…

From SearchSoftwareQuality.com: Agile backlash series: Exploring Agile development problems and solutions I think Jan Stafford did a great job on this series.  I don’t agree with every opinion from everyone interviewed, but I wouldn’t expect …

This is from a while back, but I wouldn’t call it dated.  It’s a webinar, it runs for 48 min.  I like it, for whatever that’s worth.  ;)Abstract:Do you ever find yourself wondering what the point is to executing this test… again!?!&nbs…

I’ve written about the process of how I got involved with the book, and the fact that I had a chance to get in because another author dropped out (never thought I’d be thankful that someone
