Letter from the Editor – November 2010

Hi everyone and welcome to our fourth edition of LogiGear Magazine. This month we finish Michael Hackett’s piece on “Agile in Testing” with part five, Tools.

I think this makes for a nice conclusion to a very exhaustive piece on what testers can expect when they are thrust into an Agile
Development project. We also have more exciting interviews from leading professors in computer science; this month we interview Computer Scientist D. Richard Kuhn, who shares with us his thoughts on combinatorial testing methods, very interesting stuff.

Hope you continue to enjoy our magazine; we are working hard at trying to make it one of the best in the testing industry. Hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving and all the best in the coming New Year.
