The Risks of Risk-Based Testing

I'm sorry about not posting sooner. Things have been busy lately.

I've been doing a lot of writing and training lately. I've been working on some cool new projects as well.

One thing I want to let you all know about is an article that will be published in the October 2006 issue of Better Software. It is titled, The Risks of Risk-based Testing. It occured to me while listening to a recent presentation about risk-based testing that although I use risk-based testing quite often, I have also been burned by risk. So, I wrote an article to detail the 12 ways I have been fooled by risk. In the meantime, you can read a rough version of the article at:

Bill Perry and I are also working hard to finish our next book, Testing Dirty Systems. I'm not making any predictions on when the book will be available, but we are working diligently on making final comments for the editors at Dorset House.

Thanks for your support and for reading my blog. I'll be back soon!

that book sounds fun, no if you culd then talk about the risk you see in software and how they play out in your interpersonal life you could then become a best-seller in the self-help catagory...which i'm sure would bring tons of money your way.

"Software For Your Brain and Your Life", eh? :-)

I've often thought about what Dr. Phil would tell testers!

Thanks for the interesting comment - not sure if I'm ready to be a self-help guru or not - maybe a motivational speaker :-).
