Mike’s Testapedia


If you have looked around, talked to other testing professionals, or searched online, then you have came to the same conclusion that I came to a long time ago…..There are hundreds of great, informative, and innovative sites which can assist you in learning more about testing, and sharing your thoughts with others.

My goal with this page of my blog is to build a living link, which I will update and modify as new links come to my attention.  If you have links or sites that you feel are helpful, please feel free to drop me a message and I will review and post!

  1. Hey Mike,
    While keeping a list in nice, still one needs to go through all these links periodically and check if there is anything new… – not really feasible for most testers.
    I found that the best method is to keep an RSS Aggregator (see STC RSS feed which covers most non-comercial blogs for instance),
    RSS Feeds can be viewed using dedicated tools such as Paper.li (no don’t run and create one and then send the link daily on twitter – hate those 🙂 ), and can also be embedded in any web site.
    This way – instead fo all of us have to run all over seeking for interesting posts – these come to a single point, we can sample daily/weekly and get all the data in centralized place, while still keeping the graphical aspects / teaser pictures, and leading us to the source sites – so these don’t loose traffic – on the contrary – they benefit from it.
    Other wise – when anyone can open a blog in 5 min, write 1 post a year, and maintain an audience of 5 friends – its useless.
    We should strive for central sites – presenting these aggregators (maybe partitioned by topics of interest).
    I placed WW Aggregator as well as Local IL aggregator in our http://www.itcb.org.il site – hope it will catch up in other main sites as well.
