Rex Black hosts a free webinar this Friday – Testing Metrics

This Friday at 1.30 (New Zealand) or 11.30 (NSW/QLD) Rex Black will be presenting a webinar entitled Testing Metrics: Project, Process and Product. If you use facts and figures to understand your business or your product, you’ll know how useful they can be. The problem is making sure your metrics are correct and useful. In this webinar Rex looks at how we can use metrics for testing, including which metrics we can use to measure the test process, metrics we can use to measure our progress and what metrics tell us about the quality of a product.

Those of you who know Rex will know that he speaks at several conferences and workshops around the world and has written several books on testing. The most popular of his books, “Managing the Testing Process”, has sold over 25,000 copies and has been translated into several languages. He is President and Principal Consultant of RBCS which is a leader in software, hardware and systems testing as well as past president of the International Software Testing Qualifications Board (ISTQB) and the American Software Testing Qualifications Board (ASTQB) and is co-author of the ISTQB Foundation and Advanced Syllabus. Phew! What a long list!

The other thing you might want to know about Rex is where you can do one of his courses. In Australia and New Zealand Software Education are exclusive partners with Rex so we’re the only organisation that run his courses. Drop Paula (NZ) or Bridgette (Aus) from our sales team an email if you’re interested in finding out more information.

This webinar is one of several FREE webinars which Software Education has hosted. We post all of our upcoming and previous webinars on our site. Some of the webinars are run by our partners (like tomorrow’s webinar) and some of them are done independently by us (these happen once every three months). This week Shane Hastie presented a webinar entitled ‘Building and Working With User Stories”. There were around 300 attendees from 14 different countries, including a handful from the U.S. which is even more impressive when you consider that it was about 5 a.m. for them! We have had some great feedback about the session and are really pleased that it has proved useful for people. At Software Education we’re always looking for ways to help our customers and fix their problems so do get in touch if you want to suggest topics or just tell us what you think in general 🙂

If you attend tomorrow hope you enjoy it (I’ll be logging in as well!) and if not then I hope one of our upcoming sessions is of interest. Thanks.
