I've done my best to avoid information overload and stay sane ;-)
So, here are my highlights of some of those blogs (covering 25 Oct - 7 Nov). A whole range of topics have come up with quite a few references for Exploratory Testing, Agile, the STC magazine and the Testing.StackExchange site:-
- Farid raised a good point about the need for continuity in Exploratory Testing: Self-Discipline in Exploratory Testing.
- James Bach & co produced a new version of their ET Dynamics List.
- Just over a week ago the book Beautiful Testing came out and Linda Wilkinson gave us a fairytale, here.
- Fred Beringer gave a good overview, here, of the GTAC 2009 conference.
- Eric Jacobson didn't get any great inspiration from Blink, here.
- Catherine Powell highlighted the need to think about the other fence after develoment, moving towards customer deployment, roll-out and support, here.
- The results of Matt Heusser's test challenge were announced, here.
- Phil Kirkham, amongst others, announced the new STC magazine, with a call for volunteers and contributors, here.
- Michael Bolton made some comments on an older StickyMinds article (talking about ET & scripted testing) that he wasn't so keen about, here.
- Peter wondered if he'd found a link between bugs and full moons, here. Howl!!!!!
- Rob Lambert shared some of his recent reading (both test & non-test related), here.
- Alan Page announced that his blog was now an ex-blog, here, also giving directions to his new blog.
- Justin Hunter talked about Cem Kaner's presentation on ET vs scripted testing, here. Justin also talked about the first month of TestingStackExchange, here.
- Ben Kelly and Markus Gärtner also wrote about exploratory testing, here and here.
You can drop me a line about noticable posts - in case they slip under my radar :-) or submit a link.
