After I had facilitated a distributed Exploratory Testing workshop, that same client asked me to help them out some more and expand on the topic. I thought it would be a good idea to try out a distributed mob testing session to help them. It would have the added benefit of showing them how effective […]
Agile Testing Days 2016: Wrap Up!
It’s a good thing Pete Walen was attending ATD again, because my live blogging efforts weren’t up to par this year. I posted two blogs so far, but they were neither live nor very detailed. It’s just that I didn’t attend a lot of talks this year. It seems that every year I go to […]

It’s like being part of a big family or something, although the feeling gets somewhat enhanced by the nice food and drink. I ended up being part of a planned table setting, and we stormed […]
