November Attendence at Eurostar 2013

I will be at the Eurostar Testing Conference 2013 in Gothenberg in November 2013.

I'm on the programme committee, which means I helped choose the presentations that made it through to the conference.

I'll be wandering around for the whole conference, helping out and trying to make sure it runs smoothly. So if you're there, feel free to wander up and say hello.

London Tester Gathering 2013 Workshops

I presented two workshops at the London Tester Gathering 2013



If these workshops seem of interest to your teams, and you would like me to run them in your organisation, then please get in touch.

Plenty of photographs were taken of the event.

I deleted some book reviews

I tidied up a few of the book reviews.

Some of them I just deleted. And that might explain how you ended up on this page through a redirection.

I deleted some reviews because they didn't add value. Some were a weak summary of the book itself and offered no insight.

I deleted some reviews because they were negative, and the review itself didn't add value. i.e. the review itself didn't educate or have any useful information, it basically just said 'don't read this book'.

And that might in some way add value, but I decided to change focus and start linking to things that I will re-read and go back to, rather than dictate what other people should do and read - you can take responsibility for yourself. I'll tell you where I go and where I find value.

You might still find reviews of books on the site that have a negative tone. Some of those remain because I think the review itself has value in the text, i.e. it explains something useful. Or I may not have acted on my 'remove this book review task yet'.

Remember to read responsibly.

Tutorial: Lessons Learned With BDD

At the January 2013 "Test Management Summit" I presented a half day tutuorial entitled "Lessons Learned with BDD"

Subtitled: Thinking and automating with Domain Specific Languages.

This was an opinionated overview of BDD where the underlying theme was that BDD involves the creation of a DSL.
