About the Book

What's a paradev?

A paradev is anyone on a software team that doesn't just do programming.

Who's this book for?

This book is for paradevs who do, or would like to do, software testing on an agile team.

Why contradictions?

"The test of a first rate intelligence is the ability to hold two opposed ideas in the mind at the same time, and still retain the ability to function."~ F. Scott Fitzgerald

Isn't this book free on your blog?

Yes, the contradictions in this book all originate from blog posts I have written on my blog. There is fifteen pages of bonus introductory material in this book, plus three bonus non-contradictions at the end, and it's packaged nicely into three convenient formats. If you liked the blog posts, please buy the book: it starts at just five bucks.

Helping the homeless

I will donate 10% of all proceeds of this book to a registered Australian charity (or charities depending on the amount) that helps Australia's homeless population.

About the Author

Alister Scott
Alister Scott

Alister Scott is a paradev from sunny Brisbane down under in Australia.

He writes a popular testing blog WatirMelon and collects quotes which he loves to use throughout his writing.

"One must never miss an opportunity of quoting things by others which are always more interesting than those one thinks up oneself." ~ Marcel Proust

His particular interest is software testing and how to make testers better testers and programmers better testers, all whilst keeping things as simple as they possibly can be.

He has a collection of over 250 arid plants (many flowering) originating from many deserts across the world.
