About the Book
The Book on Software Testing, Volume 1 is a compilation of short stories, poems, and vignettes offering perspectives from software testers who attended the Let's Test South Africa 2016 context-driven testing conference, held just outside Johannesburg, South Africa.
Ranging from funny to sad, angry to enthusiastic, assured to inquisitive, every entry rings with the voice of the author who penned it. Leonidas Hepis and Benjamin Segebartt coached the authors on Seven Keys to Insightful Writing, a set of attitudes and exercises to bring every writer's wisdom onto the written page. The resulting vignettes were assembled within a day into this book, now available here.
