Testing questions and the Laws of eCommerce

(Disclosure: I am not a lawyer!)¬†(Request: Are you a lawyer? Please send me corrections ūüôā) Matters related to law, and all the discussions around it, interest me much — especially when related to Software.

There was the usual mumbo jumbo of the required traits (“BSC in computer science or equivalent“, “Worked directly with R&D department“) and advantage points (“General knowledge of at least one mainstream (programming) language“), and one of the requirements lines said “Testing methodologies:

On certified testers and being certifiable, and on non native english speakers :)

I like the SQE. SQE brings columns by Michael Bolton almost monthly on the Better Magazine. They also arrange the¬†nice STAR conferences (hadn’t the¬†opportunity to participate yet, but I will eventually) and store a large number of articles online¬†of all testing flavors.

Set the butterflies free – now I am collecting quotes

I’ve started a quote collection. Many times I want to quote someone but I just don’t remember how exactly the phrase was. Or remember the quote but am not certain on the source… I am fond of quoting. Not sure¬†why, but I like to quote.¬†I guess it gives some legitimating to what I am saying.
