I can not believe so much time has passed since my last blog post.
OVER A MONTH!
I have several in the works and will be posting one shortly after this - I promise.
Since the last update, I've been crazy busy at the day-job. I spent several days in New York with Matt Heusser hanging with some really smart people and talking about testing. I made some new friends and chatted with people I knew by reputation and cyberly - but met in person for the first time.
One night I participated in a panel discussion hosted by the Financial Services Special Interest Group of AST - the Association for Software Testing. What an interesting experience - lots of different view points and ideas around some seemingly simple questions.
We had a great time.
I've also had some interesting conversations when we got back - lots of interesting things happening in testing all around the world, it seems.
I had, at one point, signed up as a "contingency instructor" for the AST's BBST Foundations Course - translated, there were folks signed up, a head instructor and two assistants, and I agreed to help out if one of them could not do the class. As it is, I got an email this last week asking if I was willing to help out. So, I'll be doing some online instruction.
There have been a stack of problems facing day job stuff - projects that simply were not working right - lots of work there. Did I mention that before?
Oh yeah, I had "unexpected oral surgery" shortly after getting back from New York and I'm like WAY behind in my writing. Sorry folks - I'll get there - I promise.
I also have been trying to catch up on the music writing I've been trying to get done.
And of course, being a husband, dad and - Oh yeah, my neice got married as well.
So, sorry for the backlog - I'll get caught up soon.
