So much to learn, so little time … Between magazines, conferences, books and actual experience, there is plenty out there to learn about software testing and become a better professional. A lot in Software Testing can be self-taught if you have the right mind and the envy. It all goes back to the lifestyle of mind so close to James Marcus Bach and his concept of a Buccaneer-Scholar (Personal note to James: I finally ordered your latest book ! Expect a review soon !).
If you have a busy life, and who doesn’t, you want to make sure you allocate blocks of time in the week to read material you’ve been putting aside. I’m a big fan of blogs and RSS (Can’t live without Google Reader!) and I subscribe to a lot of Software Testing blogs. As I was cleaning out some of my subscription, I thought I would build a list of my favorite blogs and share it with the community. It doesn’t mean this list represents the best blogs out there but they are the best one for me. I do believe they’re a good starting point.
Here is the list ! For each blog I’ve also added a link to a specific article I really enjoyed in the past. I will regularly update this list with new favorites. For easy subscription to all these fine blogs, you can subscribe through this Google Reader bundle or download the OPML file.
