Testers' Island Discs Ep22 - Michele Playfair
This week's interview comes courtesy of Michele Playfair, discussing some of the ideas which form the foundation of her forthcoming TestBash Australia talk, "A Tester's Guide To Changing Hearts And Minds".
In an episode themed around trust, communication and collaboration, we talk about how testing overlaps with programming, teaching and marketing; how introverts can get outside their comfort zone; and whether Michele is secretly trying to start a war.
Along the way, we pay tribute to the work of Jerry Weinberg, and play Michele's song selections which each have a geographic significance.
