Hello everyone – I’m hoping each one of us is having a great October. This time of the year is always my favorite, with the changing of the seasons, Fall was always my favorite time of year; it signified change and renewal – but I don’t want to digress to much from what’s going on here at LogiGear Magazine.
This month, Michael Hackett continues his series on Agile, this time talking about the importance of training. Michael should know, he has been the champion of much of LogiGear’s training curriculum and content. He has taught classes and seminars all over the world on topics ranging from leading a test team to how to design excellent tests. His passion
these days has been “all about Agile and how it affects testing” and these articles are just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to what LogiGear is doing around Agile.
Michael recently developed a new class called “Testing in Agile Development” and he started evangelizing in the summer. We continue to write and talk about how to inject test automation into Agile Development sprints successfully, and most
importantly trying to stay ahead of the curve and teaching testers the do’s and don’ts in this new software development model.
I recently just got back from speaking at STARWEST, a conference held by SQE, and the major topic was, you guessed it, Agile. So, it’s fitting that we continue to write and talk about it here and in conferences that many of the LogiGear executives speak at – so continue to look for more interesting material from LogiGear on Agile Development.
This month we are also introducing a way for others to contribute to our magazine. We have put together an editorial calendar for article submissions from others who might want to reach our testing community. We certainly value others input and opinions in software testing, and there is no better place to that than in LogiGear Magazine.
We hope you enjoy the interviews this month and our other related articles about software testing – we hope our readership finds our articles and materials interesting, and look forward to bringing you more great testing knowledge in the months ahead.
