There’s always something new to learn, and these days watching webinars and recorded conference videos are good ways of finding and sharing interesting content about what practices do other people think is important in software testing. Lately I am finding myself getting more curious about performance and security testing, as well as the idea of software (including test code) as specification.
Some engaging thoughts about those topics, if you’re interested:
