Five for Friday – May 11, 2018

It’s time for the weekly visit inside things going through my head (and browser) this week. A bit of self-promotion in the last two bullets, but I hope you find these interesting anyway.

  • I’ve been thinking a lot lately (on many fronts) about change – and resistance to change, and I’m reminded of this quote by Arnold Bennett:
    Any change, even a change for the better, is always accompanied by drawbacks and discomforts. “
  • I liked this article by Jurgen Appelo on The Sense and Nonsense Of Empowerment. For those of you who are managers, I’m curious to hear what you think.
  • There are really only two (four if you count Windows on my home PC, and my Xbox One) Microsoft products I use much anymore. One is Excel – but only when I need to do analysis or create visuals that Google Slides can’t handle.
    But Visual Studio Code has become my favorite code editor – and it keeps getting better. They release monthly, and every release has multiple valuable features and fixes. To be fair, I don’t write much code these days, but when I do, I’ve been turning to Code every time.
  • I was honored and happy to be included in Abstracta’s list of the 75 Best Software Testing Blogs. I was impressed that they actually poked around and found out what Angry Weasel means to me, and the list includes a lot of great resources.
  • In the I think this is really cool category, Ministry of Testing made a poster (and an accompanying article) of the Modern Testing Principles. Print it and post it (and forward me the feedback :}).
