UTest has published a recent interview with James Bach. James is always insightful, provocative, and can turn a phrase. Here is the link: http://blog.utest.com/testing-the-limits-with-james-bach-part-i-2/2011/09/
But don't read the article yet! Take this test first.
Match column A, with James's metaphor from column B:
testing maturity models like frightened bunnies
certification like trying to invent an android that can talk to your wife for you
being a developer like a possum
the quest for the clever tool a sin for testers
belief like completing 25 crossword puzzles every day
tester giving a report grand festival of waste
fake software testing a tape worm parasite, living off our flesh
Pencils down. Now read the article. And Part II:
PS: James says - "I’ve been playing with “R”. It’s a free statistical analysis system.
There are several books on it. I love tools that help me work with complicated data."
- I will have to connect him with Meijian
PPS: The tool that has helped me most recently is my Canon solid state video recorder combined with my micro tripod.
- I will have to add one to my kit. I already have a flip video camera.
So what is your opinion on what James said?
