We’re back to the MT Principle Deep-Dives (which may just be medium dives). Principle #2 says: We accelerate the team, and use models like Lean Thinking and the Theory of Constraints to help identify, prioritize and mitigate bottlenecks from the system. We talk about that – but of course, there are a few tangents we […]
We are already taking an interlude from principle deep-dives to reflect a bit on the episode 81 feedback, and for Brent and Alan to have short (but in depth) discussion on how to get started creating actionable metrics. We’ll be back to Modern Testing principles in episode 83.
We don’t reiterate the Principles directly (see the Episode 77 show notes for that), we talk a lot about how we are adapting the principles slightly based on feedback and discussions with the three – and how much better the principles are for the effort. We also discover that both Brent and Alan love to cook. […]
We discuss, vet, and rewrite (and not for the last time), the Modern Testing Principles. These are a work in progress, but we’re happy to share the current final form. Listen to the podcast to hear these developed in real time. The customer is the only one suitable to judge and evaluate the quality of […]
First show of 2018, with a variety of topics that are all mostly about Modern Testing. Items of note include the State of Testing survey, podcast plans for 2018, Alan’s presentation schedule (“where is the weasel?”), and the usual amount of tangents.

It’s the penultimate AB show of 2017. More discussions about modern testing, a bit of a preview of what’s coming up in episode 73, the role of a modern tester in code craftsmanship, and a bit on this shift-left thing.
In this eclectic episode, we discuss college savings plans, personal finance (wtf?), definitions of “Modern Testing”, and recap the Unity Services Test Summit (where Brent presented on moving to a data-centric culture). Enjoy.
We had a brief break in recording, but we’re back with another fun-filled fifty minutes where we take mailbag questions on the pros and cons of ISTQB certification, the impact of easy-to-create GUI tests on the testing pyramid, and whether or not you really need a data scientist.
We spend a chunk of time talking about a report (The State of Functional Testing), and how it aligns with modern testing. We answer a #mailbag question elaborating on the role of a modern tester, and we get to hear Brent functioning on just a few hours of sleep.
A bit of a follow up episode with more management advice. We talk about how to give feedback to our employees and about frameworks and approaches we like for giving that feedback. This episode brought to you by STAR Canada. If you are thinking about attending, STARCANADA is offering 20% off your conference fees […]
It’s the AB Testing Management episode. We reflect a bit on our growth as managers and share some of the tools and philosophies that (we hope) allow us to succeed. Some of the books mentioned include (also note the link on the right for a free month of Audible): The Leaders Guide to Radical Management […]
We talk about Agile Testing (both the concept and the book), and how it relates to the “Modern Testing” we’ve talked about before. Also – there’s a mailbag question on Multi Armed Bandit Testing. This episode brought to you by the folks at Techwell. Attend Agile Dev East, the premier agile event covering the latest […]
