TLDR; March content contains links to free books and resources and a new course on Linkedin.
TLDR; Observation in real time. Interrogation after the act. Bringing Interrogation closer to Observation can help detect issues during a process. The depth of Observation and Interrogation changes depending on our knowledge of the system and technology. And we may not be done, if our observation was limited.
When I test I make a distinction between Observation and Interrogation and I’m going to explain what that means, and show you hands on example of how that distinction helps me improve my testing and the scope of of my testing.
TLDR; Learning effective synchronisation strategies makes your automated execution more reliable.
One of the most important skills I have developed for automating was learning how to synchronise. And we often spend time working on this for automation consultancy engagements because it is a fast way to improve the trust in the execution.

TLDR; February content based on Conference and Tutorial prep, some strategic books, and updates to my Testing Apps.
TLDR; January I spent some time exploring combinatorial techniques and Systems Modelling
TLDR; Getting started with programming is the hardest part. Installing the IDE, adding dependencies, writing your first test.

Switching languages when you know one is not too hard so do not worry about being stuck with a language, focus on getting started.
TLDR; December was a bumper month for Patreon because I released a new micro course
