TWIST #18: From Vegas With "LOVE"
Sorry for being so quiet this week. I think this is the first time I've gone a week between posts. Just a lot going on at work and I'm just feeling really, well, exhausted. On the TWiST front, though, we decided to start playing with the idea of doing some extra stuff, especially since we have so many audio clips to play with. It's not realistic to put together multiple podcasts with all content, nor is it good to have them be stretched out for months to the point where they lose their relevancy,so we've decided to star something we're calling TWiST-Plus. This is a platform to put those little pieces together and have them be coherent elements as worthy of downloading and listening to as the TWiST podcasts are, and I produced my first working version this week. Note: it hasn't been posted yet, but when it is, I'll give the link to the STP site URL. 'Til then, please check it out here. It's a talk from Adam Goucher comparing the Golden Age of Pirate and today's Agile Development Methods and teams.
For today's episode, Matt went to STPCON at the Mirage in Las Vegas. While he was there, he interviewed Rich Hand, who is the lead guy in the rebranding of Software Test Profgessionals. They talked about the conference and the many presentations and opportunities to help promote STP's vision of "community driven" testing knowledge development.
For those who want to check it out, here is Episode #18.
Each podcast is free for 30 days, but you have to be a basic member to access it. After 30 days, you have to have a Pro Membership to access it, so either head on over quickly (depending on when you see this) or consider upgrading to a Pro membership so that you can get to the podcasts and the entire library whenever you want to :). In addition, Pro membership allows you to access and download to the entire archive of Software Test and Quality Assurance Magazine, and its issues under its former name, Software Test and Performance.
Again, my thanks to STP for hosting the podcasts and storing the archive. We hope you enjoy listening to them as much as we enjoy making them :).
