BBST Foundations (BBST_101E): Starts This Saturday

This Saturday, in addition to a session of Weekend Testing Americas, another session of the Association for Software Testing's Black Box Software Testing Foundations class will begin. It will be another four weeks of all volunteer effort, with a number of dedicated instructors helping to teach the class. It will be challenging, it will be fun, it will be a chance to learn even more than I already have from this great class, and this time I will probably learn more than all other times combined. Why you might ask? Because I'm going to be the Lead Instructor for this course!

I am excited and anxious about this turn of events. Excited because I want to see how well I can do in this environment, but anxious because I'm going to be the guy in the driver's seat this time. there's a lot that goes on behind the scenes for these classes to run smoothly, and a lot of the details associated with the class running smoothly are because the lead instructor makes sure to take care of many of those pieces. In previous classes, those responsibilities belonged to someone else. This time, they belong to ME!

However, I am not alone in this endeavor. I have two great assistants this time around (Mimi Mendenhall and Doug Hoffman). Mimi will be doing it for the first time, and Doug has been around since the courses were first offered, and could probably teach this class in his sleep (LOL!).

Registration is still open until Wednesday, 3/30/2011, so if you are interested in seeing if you can still get into the class, please follow the link to register and take part. If the class is over-booked, you can of course sign up for the next one. I may not be teaching that go-around, but it will still be a great class with whoever is teaching it. If, however, you can get in, I'll look forward to having you be a part of my class :).

I'm not worried about this class running smoothly. Not a bit. What a team! :-)
