Someone recently asked me “if you could ask any person anything, who would you ask and what would you ask?” This was very thought provoking…and reading the discussion on the STANZ LinkedIn Group made me think about it too. Who and what? To assist I cast my eyes over my bookshelf, blog list, and magazine subscriptions.
Who would I ask and what would I love to hear them talk about?
Rex Black – metrics – best ones, quick wins, most effective
Michael Bolton – metrics – as above (I love to hear the variety of approaches)
Dot Graham – Automation
Capers Jones – estimation, metrics again (am I boring??)
Lisa Crispin &/or Tip House – testing agile!
Karl Wiegers (I know he does requirements – BUT….) – how to test requirements
DeMarco & Lister – Peopleware is a FABULOUS book – more on the soft skills and understanding how testers can work better.
Critical Thinking….anyone who can talk about how to expand my mental horizons and think “outside the square”.
Wow…and the list goes on!
Who would you ask, and what would you ask?
