TWiST #38 - with Zach Spencer
One of the cool things about being a vocal and public user of Audacity is that I get contacted by people who do stuff with Audacity as well and either ask questions, offer suggestions, or in this case, aske me to review a new book. That review will go up on Wednesday if all goes well, but I'm please and happy that No Starch Press reached out to me to review their new title "The Book of Audacity".
More than just review, I like when a book gives me a new approach to do ing things and new ideas to production techniques. One of them is the use of the Leveling and Normalization routines in concert on separate sections, so that I can make a more natural balance between sections and do them fairly quickly. It's proven to be a huge time saver :)!
So this week Zach Spencer came back to be on the show (he was featured in Epidode 13). lot of this episode is dedicated to Acceptance Test Driven Development (specifically discussing Cucumber and its use in the organization) as well as User Experience testing and becoming a Subject Area Expert. of course, you don't have to take my word for it, go to Episode #38 and listen for yourself :).
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 :).
