Kom naar de workshop 'Getting a grip on Exploratory testing' van James Lyndsay

Workshop 'Getting a grip on Exploratory testing'  van James Lyndsay

In 2013 is het mij gelukt om James Lyndsay in Nederland te krijgen voor zijn zeer 
gerespecteerde workshop 'Getting a grip on Exploratory Testing' 

We hebben dit besproken en als er weer genoeg mensen geïnteresseerd zijn dan kunnen we dit jaar dit weer herhalen. Zijn workshops duren 2 dagen (volgens sommige te kort) en je oefent in de workshop actief met software om vaardigheden op te doen binnen gestructureerd Exploratory testing.

Ben je geïnteresseerd in een workshop (ik verwacht dat we het rond april/mei kunnen plannen), laat het dan weten. Als ik genoeg geïnteresseerden heb, dan kunnen we iets gaan plannen. mensen die zich (vrijblijvend) bij mij melden, krijgen extra korting.

Dus mail me en laat het weten, als er genoeg mensen meedoen dan regel ik het verder!

Testing quotes websites

On Twitter I saw the next tweet:
Tim Western @Veretax
I wonder if anyone has collected some of the most famous (or infamous) quotes relating to software testing.
A while ago I searched the internet for testing Quotes to make a list of my own to use for tweeting or to put on my website, or whatever... But I never did do anything with it. But the tweet reminded me of this effort. I tweeted in reply some quotes from the list I made:
“Quality is free, but only to those who are willing to pay heavily for it.” – T. DeMarco and T. Lister
“Quality is never an accident; it is always the result of intelligent effort.” – John Ruskin
"A good model guides your thinking, a bad one warps it." - Brian Marick
"Quality is free, but only to those who are willing to pay heavily for it." - Lister, DeMarco:
"Testing a product is a learning process." - Brian Marick
“Actual tests are part of planning too. At least, they can be, if done consciously.” - Shmuel Gershon
"If you're gonna manage testers or any highly cognitive work, then you need to participate in the work.” - James Bach
“Exploratory Testing is not so much a thing that you do; it's far more a way that you think.“ - Michael Bolton
“Pay attention to zeros. If there is a zero, someone will divide by it.” - Cem Kaner
“If you don’t care about quality, you can meet any other requirement” - Gerald M. Weinberg
These are the short quotes that fit into a tweet. The list I made had much longer quotes. I got these quotes from Twitter but most of them from some websites. So here are the websites I checked, enjoy them!

And an extra tip, if you like testing quotes, have a Twitter account and you don't follow Michael Bolton yet. He has become a master in creating 'testtweetquotes'. Check @michaelbolton
