Another well-known person in software testing sharing his thoughts this week! This time it's James Bach breaking down and deeply analysing bug characteristics, which I found very insightful.
What does it mean to have a good testing team? James Turner refers to his 40 years of experience in software engineering, trying to define the answer. (Yes, yet another big fish in this week's pond!)
I've seen testing being compared to exercising at a gym or even washing a pig after wrestling, but this is the first time I hear about testing being like finding exoplanets. Up for a scientific and philosophical read? Jeff Nyman should satisfy you with this thought-provoking article.
I liked this neat article, Zany Mehta explores two approaches to testing mobile apps. So who should do the testing, QA or a developer?
Thinking of moving from QA to DevOps? In this article, Evan Niedojadło provides tons of resources that will help you make the transition and become a Site Reliability Engineer.
Closing this week's News section with a question that I used to ask myself a lot — should bug reports have story points? If so, when? Thanks to KC we may have the answers now.
