TWiST #40 -- with Fiona Charles

So this was a challenging week to edit a podcast, all things considered. The Selenium conference was in town, and I was an attendee (see my past three entries for my live notes from the various sessions that I attended).

Normally, I use the spare time that I get in the various times of the day to edit these details, but the conference left me few times where I would be able to do that, so that left me with early morning or late at night (and those who follow the blog know that I'm next to useless late at night, so early morning it was). I was actually able to get the podcast done early this week, and therefore it's been up for a day already (that doesn't usually happen, but I hope the early treat was enjoyed by you all out there :) ).

This week's interview is with Fiona Charles. Fiona is a consultant who's specialty is test management for large scale companies and organizations, both private as well as public/government projects.  Fiona is the principal consultant with QualityIntelligence. Her  blog and twitter details are in the links.

Fiona takes on a number of topics related to large projects, dealing with the challenges and issues that those projects face, including project and corporate politics and the roles of testers in that big mix. But why listen to me prattle on about it, go check out Episode #40 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 :).
