Test and Code
About the Show
How did you become a software developer/tester/engineer/lead, etc?
Odds are we all are missing some important information to do our jobs most effectively.
This podcast is an attempt to fill those education gaps.
I focus on testing and process questions like “How do I know it works?”, “How do I effectively test?”, and the like.
But really, anything in the software development realm is fair game.
