Alternative Paths for Self-Education in Software Testing by Markus Gaertner (EuroStar talk)

Markus Gartner is very skilled in speed-notes. He’s been around EuroStar speed-noting all the session’s he’s been into. He calls it live blogging, but I use the term Speed-Note because, well, I think I coined it ;). He was live-blogging all the talks, but… who is live-blogging Markus’s talk? Who watches the watchmen? Well, I took the

Should/Need Testers know how to Program (a Testing Question from Brazil)

There’s a very active Brazilian software testing discussion mailing list in Portuguese, called DFTestes. When I say “very active”, I mean an average of 215 messages/month in 2009, and January 2010 has got more than 404 messages. Compared with other mailing list I participate, this is the most active one, and a tip of hat

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

In August, a rewrite of July's uTest post (and maybe official feedback)

The initial opinions are still there. While the pay-per-bug model presented by uTest is certainly innovative and interesting; the model still misses a lot. It will certainly

Read the bugs

Eric Sink is very well known in the software development community. I would say he’s a legend, but he says he’s not one. He writes books, software, and gives interviews about the craft and business of software. Not only that, but (not surprisingly) he’s also got a blog. Two months ago he wrote that reading

Testing Insights – The Graphing Calculator

I’ve recently heard The Graphing Calculator Story, a ~54:00 min long Google Tech video on YouTube. On it, Ron Avitzur tells the story of the development of his (and Greg’s) Graphing Calculator, an impressive mathematical software that shipped with Mac computers for years. What’s special about the story? Well, he did it at Apple, but
