TWiST #35 - with Richard Sheridan
So this was a pretty cool interview and a lot of great information this time around. The interview itself sounds more like a call-in show, in the sense that the connection with our guest sounds like a typical phone line by comparison to some of the other interviews.
Volume leveling was interesting this time around in that the call was rely hot on the interviewee side, but I've gotten to the point that the leveling is becoming more natural (doing too hard a leveling causes both voices to sound distorted, so I've abandoned that technique). The down side is that there are some slightly jumpy dynamics, but I think we're getting it to a more natural level each week (hoping I'll be able to cobble up a NyQuist command that will allow me to do a clean leveling without introducing distortion, but so far, I haven't figured out the magic formula for that yet.
This week we talk with Richard Sheridan. Richard is the CEO of Menlo Innovations, a company dedicated to putting Extreme Programming and Agile practices into, well practice. His take on developing joy in the work, making for a sustainable work pace, and developing what he terms as "Quality Advocates". In any event, to listen to Episode #35, go here :).
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 :).
