Reading Recommendations # 24

Summer is coming, I hope you enjoyed the hot days in Europe as well. Maybe you find a nice shady place to read the 24th issue of my software testing reading recommendations. This issue contains 7 blog posts and one podcast. There are topics dealing with: “What skills should we learn & teach to build quality in” from Lisa Crispin. Why Managers need to communicate to effectively. There is a interesting post about the 8 myths and facts about Internet of Things (IoT).

Google announced the call for paper for the GTAC, which is an awesome mobile test automation conference. One post has the topic defining your role as a tester from Markus Gärtner. Another post is describing the four most powerful tools of a video game tester. Maaret Pyhäjärvi is writing about her experience with test automation and how she failed with the used approach. And the last entry in this episode is the latest version of Testing in the Pub by Stephen Janaway and Dan Billing with the topic WTF are NFRs.

Enjoy reading the posts.
