#STPCon Interviews – JoEllen Carter and Jerry Odenwelder

Here’s the latest interview in our STPCon 2011 video series. Jerry Odenwelder (a product owner) and JoEllen Carter (a tester) from VersionOne weren’t communicating as well as they could. So the two of them got together and realized that product owners are from Mars and testers are from Venus. Realizing this was worth telling the world, they put together an STPCon presentation. Here they are with a synopsis:

#STPCon Interviews – Rex Black

Are you attending STPCon this week in Dallas, TX? If so, good for you! If not, well have we got a treat for you. uTest is a platinum sponsor for STPCon this year, and we’re here meeting with some of testing’s top experts and thought leaders. Oh, and did we mention that we brought along a video camera, too?

For the next couple of days, we’re going to be sharing some quick video interviews with some of the testing world’s smartest people. Keep an eye on the uTest blog to hear some great testing ideas about testing, agile, Harry Potter (wait, what?) and to find out what’s happening here at STPCon.

First up, we got to talk with Rex Black. Besides being an author and former president of ISTQB, Rex was also a Testing The Limits guest back in November, 2010. He’s currently the president of RBCS, Inc., a leader in software, hardware, and systems testing. To learn more, check out the RBCS blog, or follow them on Twitter, Facebook and YouTube.

Rex’s keynote was about the importance of metrics in testing. Not just any metrics, mind you. The right metrics!
