What a week! It seems that many great software testers out there had time to write some awesome blog posts. The 61st edition of my reading recommendations contains 10 interesting blog posts with various topics that might be of interest for you. There are topics about “The Problem With Best Practices”, “balance between testing activities”, “hiring technical testers”, “The “Mindset” Mindset”, “The craziest bug I have ever seen”, “Why is Manual QA Still So Prevalent?”, “Software Testing Learning MindMap”, “The abysmal state of ‘testing’ in 2016”, “MVP or not?! – A misunderstood pic goes viral” and “Something is off with conference talk selection”.
Enjoy reading the posts and send me new ones that are worth reading and I will mention you and link to your social links or blog.

Thanks for reading, re-tweeting and sharing my reading recommendations every week! If you have any kind of blog post, podcast or video that is worth sharing with the software testing community, send me the URL either via comments, twitter or mail and I will add it with a mention of your name to my reading recommendations.
When you have finished reading the recommended blog posts think about leaving a comment. The author of the blog will love to see your comment and it will start a nice discussion about the topic that may help others to understand the topic even more.
