Carnival of Testers #26

" #softwaretesting #testing "

This month there were many flavours on communication...

Joe Strazzere encountered an interesting problem, here, with re-communication of his words without crediting Joe. An important issue that all should be on the lookout for.

A mindmap is always an interesting communication medium. James Bach's CAST2011 mindmap. Here, Adam Knight maps his Eurostar talk.

Rikard Edgren used book form to communicate his ideas and influences around test design, here. Well worth a read!

Good thoughts around conferences, gathering and communicating here from Phil Kirkham.

Communicating about the part testing plays is at the heart of Elisabeth Hendrickson's post, here.

Simon Schrijver compiled a list of free testing magazines, here.

Ben Kelly's take on framing and communication is worth reading, here.

Some interesting points that Eric Jacobson noted, here, on an internal presentation around more effective tester communication.

Testing asshole? Marlena Compton gives some hints to the communication imperatives that will be part of her talk at PNSQC.

Some interesting articles from Joris Meets and how he relates them to software testing, some of the issues discussed are (at the root) about how we relate to (and communicate about) software testing.

Michael Bolton wrote about representing testing problems as testing results as a way to communicate about the product.

Until the next time...


  1. Thank you again. It's always fun to be part of the Carnival!

  2. Always a pleasure including you Joe!

    This month I thought your point was extremely important and noteworthy!
