TWiST #32 - with Brian Noggle (aka QAHatesYou)

When I heard the opening first minute of this particular podcast, and heard the first words from the interviewee, I thought to myself "OK, hang on a minute… is this who I think it is?!!"

For those reading the title, yes, this is an interview with test consultant Brian Noggle… OK, so what? We do interviews with test consultants all the time, why would this be special? Well, when I tell you that Brian Noggle is much better known, and in my case, somewhat beloved, by his alter ego, this might make a little more sense. Brian Noggle is "The Director", but he is even more well known for the internet personna he presents and that I love to follow, frequently retweet, and look forward to seeing tweets from and blog updates from.


Yes, Brian Noggle is the legendary QAHatesYou, and I realized quickly that this would be no ordinary interview, and Matt and Brian do not disappoint.

If you do not follow @QAHatesYou, follow him.

If you want to read both a funny and an insightful blog/website, add to your blog feed.

More to the point, if you want to hear a great interview with a bit of snark (but well placed snark), then listen to Episode 32.

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 :).

Thanks for this post. I always get a great laugh out of the QAHatesYou site. Nice to know there is a 'real' person behind the dripping sarcasm. Great stuff.
