Modelling Tesla for Software Testing

Jan 4, 2002 - 6 minute read - Evil Tester Techniques

Colarado Springs, 1900, and a round wooden building has been constructed 100 feet in diameter. Within the building a metal spike, fifty feet high, extends from floor to ceiling, this continues for another 70 feet into the desert air. A thin man sits on a wooden chair reading a hand written scientific text not more than 5 feet away from the spike. Suddenly a roar of tumultuous proportions fills the room, neighbours 10 miles away step out of their homes to see what has disturbed them.

Charity Shop Shopping For Software Testing Books

A Fortunate Perusal… I was recently browsing in a second hand charity book shop.

Fortunately they quoted £2, this was the first time I had ever been pleased to see testing undervalued.

I picked one in the middle of the available price range, aesthetic enough to meet my visual bench criteria, and sturdy enough to cope with the demands of visiting nephews and feral squirrels.
