TWiST #29 with Scott Duncan
This week’s episode was especially timely for me, since just this week I moved into a new company that is actively practicing Agile software development. Our guest this week is Agile coach and Scrum Alliance President Scott Duncan. I found myself listening closely to this episode and enjoying the view that Scott discusses (and at times defends) regarding Agile practices and how they are applied to companies (both successfully and unsuccessfully. He covers a number of interesting areas including the thought that we are making a mistake when we provide too much emphasis on trying to copy manufacturing models for software testing processes. Anyway, for those interested in listening, here’s Episode #29.
Each TWiST 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.
TWiST-Plus is all extra material, and as such is not hosted behind STP’s site model. There is no limitation to accessing TWiST-Plus material, just click the link to download and listen.
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 :).
