I’ve been asked to participate in a new Borland company group blog focusing on agile and other related issues. Check it out.
Agile Testing: A Practical Guide for Testers and Agile Teams, the much anticipated book by agile testing gurus Lisa Crispin and Janet Gregory, is scheduled for publication in December, but apparently, it’s already available as an ebook via via Safari books online. Call me old fashioned, but I think I’ll wait for the paper publication.
I think the most impressive looking items on my resume are probably my stint as Director of Quality Assurance at two small companies. In reality, however, my current job as QA Architect at Borland is, by far, the best experience that I’ve had.
At the small companies, I was in charge of both architecting and implementing QA processes. At my current job, however, I am responsible for helping other groups within the company implement the processes that I devise. That’s a much more challenging and educational task than implementing my own processes, and it’s also, not coincidentally, why I sought a QA architect position at a larger company.
