Interview with Jerry Weinberg at Citerus

Read it here. As usual, Jerry Weinberg has many thought-provoking things to say. My favorite:

"Q: If you're the J.K Rowling of software development, who's Harry P then?

A: Well, first of all, I'm not a billionaire, so it's probably not correct to say I'm the J.K. Rowling of software development. But if I were, I suspect my Harry Potter would be a test manager, expected to do magic but discounted by software developers because "he's only a tester." As for Voldemort, I think he's any project manager who can't say "no" or hear what Harry is telling him."

Testers are finally redeemed :-)

I noticed your blog doesn't have an RSS feed link. Many of the blogspot blogs do...would you consider enabling it?
