Testing Talk

To grow as a developer one must look broader than only improving coding skills. In any serious software shop, developers work in close collaboration with testers or a QA department. In this extremely entertaining talk, you will be taking into the mind of a good tester and understand how testers think and test. Ultimately this talk will help you improve how you communicate with testers when you need them to test your stuff.

1. James Bach

James Bach is a controversial figure in the testing community. Mostly because he if of the opinion that all you've learned in testing classes is pure garbage. In this talk he goes through a number of examples to prove that point.

Allow the speaker around the 5 minute mark to really warm of. From that point on its just pure hilarious jokes mixed with ranting but at the same time really educative. I hope you enjoy it as much as I have (and I've watched it couple of times already).

Some of the main take-aways

2. The video: On software testing

You'll find many similar talks to this one, but I think this one is the best. Mostly due to the fact that James seem much more relaxed and more fun.

Happy laughs
