For Twist #27
we interview Cem Kaner
; it's a good podcast; I hope you enjoy it.
(TWiST is "This Week in Software Testing", a weekly audio podcast; here's a link
Note that during the podcast we talked a bit about the Black Box Software Testing (BBST) Course that Cem helped create. While you may have heard of the course, you might not know that a great majority of the course materials -- including the instructional videos
-- are available free online.
Here's the free bonus - check out the BBST course materials
. If you want a brief but fast-paced introduction to software testing, well, grab some popcorn, click on the foundations tab, click videos, and download a video or two.
No, watching the videos won't give you the same kind of learned mastery you would get with the course, but it can certainly serve as a good introduction to the literature, or maybe serve as something to watch as a team to begin a brown-bag discussion about software testing, or to help you decide if taking a formal course is something to pursue.
