@zeljkofilipin Suggestion for reading club: "Explore It!" by Elisabeth Hendrickson (https://pragprog.com/titles/ehxta/explore-it/)

Quite short, easy to read, lots of practical techniques for (exploratory) testing.

$23 though, bit pricey.

@dom_walden That's a great suggestion! I've added it to the list. Is it in the appropriate place in the list? Would you like to read it sooner?

I have already read it, so I don't mind. That seems fine.

@zeljkofilipin - Can we create a document (or a wiki page) to add in an informal way what points in a book seem important or trigger some thoughts/ideas? I guess the google doc would the best place to store such insights.

@Etonkovidova Sounds like a good idea! Feel free to set it up.

@Etonkovidova I've created a Google document for T293817: Perfect Software. The link is in the task. Let me know if you can't open it.

Possible suggestions for the future:

  • The Complete Software Tester: Concepts, Skills, and Strategies for High-Quality Testing by Kristin Jackvony
  • Black Box Testing: Techniques For Functional Testing Of Software And Systems by Boris Beizer
    • Had this on my shelf for years. Read bits of it. Would like to dedicate some times to studying it and trying to apply the ideas. Quite a dense read though: not very accessible. Covers some of the same techniques from Explore It! (e.g. state-based testing) but in a more "formal" way.

  • Exploratory Software Testing: Tips, Tricks, Tours, and Techniques to Guide Test Design by James A. Whittaker
