Day 19 - 30: BOOT CAMP: A Huge Reading List and Leaving A Legacy

Wow, where has the time gone?!

Seriously I had no idea it had been 11 days since I'd done a BOOT CAMP update, but make no mistake, I've been pounding on this stuff. I think I can safely consider my PRACTICUM and BOOK CLUB posts as fulfilling my obligations on this front :).

Actually, I wanted to make a point to say that my reading list has been added to again. As of right now, here is the list of titles in my active reading queue:



Seriously thinking that Everyday Scripting with Ruby and Learn Python the Hard Way would make for great PRACTICUM segments. Anyone else interested? Anything else I'm missing?

Also, as a going away present, I'm in the process of fine tuning my WS2008 server that I've used for testing and making accounts for my development team so that they can all go in and explore the toys I've been playing with the past few years. Since I need to document this and leave enough bread crumbs for the testers that follow on after me, as well as to encourage a little more test infection for the development team, seemed only fitting to make everything freely accessible and source controlled so that they can play and continue the discussion after I'm gone.

Wow, only 10 more days. I never imagined 30 days would fly by so fast!

you're reading list seems to grow as fast as mine does !

Everyday Scripting with Ruby is one of my favourite testing books so would be interested in reading what you make of it.

Haven't touched Python yet so would also like to hear what you think of Learn Python the Hard Way

I'm about to dive into some Java and have Agile Java on the way along with The Leader's Guide to Radical Management - and hope to read Beautiful Teams before those arrive, I'll try and review those now that you've set such a good example
