I realized the other day that I’ve been involved with something for years that I’ve failed to mention here. Since 2011 I’ve hosted an evening show at CAST where I interview interesting testers as part of AST’s conference live-stream. If you didn’t know about it or haven’t had a chance to check it out please […]

A few weeks ago a writer for Dice.com approached me about interviewing testers. She was doing a series centered around interview questions for technical positions; good responses, bad responses, and rational. I’ve written about interviewing and been part of panel discussions before (Part I, Part II) so I was honored to have the opportunity to […]

A while back I created a software testing patch. While I never had it made I thought it was still worth sharing.
The eye is for observation, the lightning bolt is for action, the day is knowledge, the night is the unknown, the square waves are software…

Tirelessly I shall defend my craft as cognitively complex, empirical, and scientific. Energetically I will meet each challenge set before me. For each challenge allows me to stretch my abilities which makes me a stronger, more skilled tester. Stakeholders shall be the cornerstone of my existence, and I shall strive to provide quality-related information in […]

Don’t follow the leader (Benjamin Yaroch's Blog)

When cooperation becomes contempt (Benjamin Yaroch's Blog)

As a tester, I provide a service to the projects I work on. I help my stakeholders (developers, project managers, customers) by gathering important information about the product and reporting it.
