Lightning Talks night with EuroStar 2010 (the Rebel Alliance, a conference after the conference with beer)

I am back from EuroStar. I’ve got lots to write about EuroStar: the people, the lectures, the Test Lab, the venue.

Software Testing is Funny! with Demetri Martin

One best friend of mine introduced me to Mitch Hedberg and Demetri Martin, great one-liner comedians. They are/were two funny men!! Three, actually, if you count my friend which is also funny.  After hearing the disks for over a year, not only the jokes aren’t any less funny, but I’ve started to find subliminal testing
