Reading Recommendations # 43

It’s Wednesday again and that means, it’s reading recommendation time. The 43rd edition of the reading recommendations is packed with 10 great blog posts and is the last issue for the year 2015. The 44th edition will be published in January. Since you have 10 posts to read this time, it should be enough to cover the christmas time :).

This time there are blog posts from Google, wrapping up the GTAC 2015, how Dan Ashby is interviewing software testers, 6 Things a Product Manager is not, What is an Agile Leader?, Why the testing pyramid is misleading, Top app predictions of 2016. Katrina Clokie wrote a great post about Hiring Junior Testers, then there is a nice paper about the average interaction time from smartwatches and smartphones, a post about questioning skills and last but not least a post about the device wall of awesome.

Enjoy reading the posts and send me posts that are worth reading and I will mention you and link to your social links or blog.
