Janet Gregory: 3 Blog Posts

As a trainer I give a training every week, another group of people and one of 3 topics: testing, requirements, quality with or without agile. To entertain myself, each time I tell another stories and mention another resources. There are no identical trainings. To keep an overview I decided to do little collection of sources I usually mention and additionally to highlight 3 blog posts.

When I read Agile Testing, book written by Janet Gregory and Lisa Crispin, I could not imagine that few years later I will teach her & Lisas training. Over the years Janet has helped me to write articles and to find my voice in testing community. I am big fan of Agile Testing Fellowship and excited to be part of it.

Here are Janets 3 blog posts:

  1. Shift Left – Why I Don’t Like the Term

  2. Do You Need A Test Column? …Lets Talk.

  3. Removing Clutter – Removing Defects

Have fun while learning!

Johanna Rothman: 4 Blog Posts

I remember that I heard about Johanna Rothman before, I remember that I read some of her pieces, but I was in other level of life and I did not really understood her. This winter I rediscovered Johannas blogs (she has three of them!!!) and keep reading us much as I can. I like that her blog posts make me think and some of things I try to use in my coaching sessions. Here are Johannas 4 blog posts from her blog Create An Adaptable Life:

  1. What Makes You Remarkable?
  2.  How Do You Feel When Others Honor You?
  3. When Do You Suffer from Comparison-itis?
  4. Who Will You Start to Become Today?

Have fun while learning!

This week I will highlight Lisas work. I had the honour to create and run a workshop with her together and since then, I am huge Lisas fan (I was before already, but now HUGE fan.)  Her blog has all kind of posts – information about webinars, recordings, book reviews, pieces of information from her books and many, many, many situations of her daily work. Here are Lisas 3 blog posts I suggest you to read:

  1. Teamwork for building in quality
  2. Dressage, Discipline and Quality
  3. Team Commitment to Quality

Have fun while learning!

I start with Katrina, who is one of my role models. Her blog is a real treasure chest, but many post surfers may have a feeling that it is for advanced readers. Please do not get scared, here are 3 blog posts what everyone will find helpful:

  1. Use your stand up to make testing visible

  2. How do you decide what to automate?

  3. Can we remove a tester from our agile team?

Additionally I suggest you to explore her posts labeled with “Pathway“.
