Five for Friday – May 12, 2023

Summer is here – or summer is here in spring – not quite sure what it is, but it’s hot. Speaking of hot, check out these hot links I found this week.

  • The folks at Tricentis are spinning up a new community called ShiftSync It looks like a great community for everyone involved in software delivery. My article on The Testing Mindset Myth is posted if you want to re-read and discuss
  • I’m still really enjoying Pop! OS on my system 76 laptop. Also really cool to see what they’re doing with the UI and Rust in their latest update.
  • Aamir Siddiqui pinged me on linkedin this week to share this really cool article on Testing GPT-Based Large Language Models. In a world where a lot of folks spend way too much time automating user workflows, it’s great to see a proper application of automation.
  • One of my former employers published an article that one of my other former employers should read. The Best of Both Worlds: Unlocking the Potential of Hybrid Work for Software Engineers is a highly interesting look into the worlds of in-person, remote, and hybrid work for software engineers.
    Here’s the kicker (note: my current role is fully remote!)
  • I read this article on Why Agile Isn’t For Me thinking it would be yet another article on someone completely misunderstanding Agile. It turns out, the author does get it – and shares the same frustrations about what Agile has become in many organizations as I do.

And that’s it for this week – I hope you found something in these links that you like.
