Second-hand Books for Sale

On 7 August 2005, I sold a spare copy of Fred Brook's 'Mythical Man Month' for a few quid on Amazon. It's the only time I used the site to sell anything so naturally, I had quite forgotten that I'd done this.

Today, I received an email from Amazon saying my account was in credit and asking for bank details so they could pay me. Maybe the poor interest they are earning on my banked cash triggered their sudden efficiency. I followed the link provided and discovered that I'd sold the book long, long ago.

So now it occurs to me that I might sell a few more books.

Test Management Complexities

On the surface the concepts of test management are simple to grasp. One test case, run against one product, by one tester and one result recorded. Such a simple concept. Except that it’s not that simple.

When you multiply up the permutations to include different versions of testcases, different versions of the product under and even different configurations the management of these artifacts soon becomes increasingly complex.
