Resources: Software test

This is a short overview about some resources related to software testing. After attending a lecture about testing of software last year at my university I went for a certificate for ISTQB Certified Tester - Foundation Level. I can strongly recommend this education/certificate since it gives you good advice on how to test and insight views into testing.
The International Software Quality Institute (iSQI) also helds a couple of big events like:

  • World Congress for Software Quality
  • CONQUEST 2004
  • iMPROVE 2004

    For German readers I can highly recommend:

  • Basiswissen Softwaretest von Andreas Spillner, Tilo Linz
  • Software-Test von Georg E. Thaller
  • Unit Tests mit Java. Der Test-First-Ansatz von Johannes Link, Peter Fröhlich
    and a good tool list as well as white papers is available from Imbus AG.

    For the Java world JUnit.org is the tool to know and the place to go for further information about the test-first or test-driven development methods.
    Fostering my testing capabilities is on my tbd. list and I will write some more thoughts about this subject soon.

    There is also a very good german introduction to the ideas and the philosophy behind test-driven development in german from Sascha Frick on http://www.empros.ch in their article section:
