TWiST #31 - with Jonathan Mischo

At the Tester’s Dinner that we had earlier in January, I had a chance to meet with and talk with Jonathan Mischo, a really cool guy who had recently moved to the Bay Area. So I was rather pleased when I got the show to edit and saw that Jonathan was the person being interviewed.

Jonathan is a Test manager and Support Engineering Manager with Involver, and they are a company that develops online branding applications for social media sites like Facebook. What’s really cool about this particular interview is that this is the first time I’ve actually heard about how development and testing of apps for Facebook is done, and the approach that companies take to work with an ever shifting platform.

Jonathan also spends some time discussing Cucumber, a test automation framework that I will be working with pretty soon, so it was nice to hear a bit more about it from someone who actively used it.

It was an enjoyable interview, and I think you might dig it as well, so why not head on over to STP and give TWiST #31 a listen!

Standard disclaimer:

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 :).
