TWiST #43 - Heather and Andy Tinkham, Part II

So here's our follow-up to last week's interview with Heather and Andy Tinkham. While Heather was the focus for much of the interview last week, Andy gets his say this time :).

It was col to hear a lot of Andy's comments because it put his talk at Selenium Conference in better context. additionally, it was a lot of fun getting to listen to this interview again and compare it to Andy, Marlena, Dawn and I walking around San Francisco and taking in dinner at The Stinking Rose (*the* destination if you are a fan of garlic and happen to be inSan Francisco :) ). 

Much of Part 2 deals with the ideas of test automation and the manual approach and how essential both are, and that trying to automate everything is a mistake, as much of the work required for good testing cannot be handed over to a computer. But enough of me prattling on about it, please, check out Episode 43 for yourself.

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, Michael! I really appreciate the editing work you did on this - it sounds great. I really enjoyed getting to know you in San Francisco :) (I still need to make some of that garlic pesto that was in the jar on the table. :) )
