The Art of Software Testing

Long term readers of this blog may remember previous entries that referred to Glenford Myers, author of "The art of software testing", such as FAQ No. 8 and FAQ No 11 or even this entry on The art of software security testing.

Well I have just learned that the 3rd edition of The Art of Software Testing is due out towards the back end of 2011 (I think October). The new edition includes some new material covering
"how to apply the book's classic principles to today's hot topics including:
  • Testing apps for iPhones, iPads, BlackBerrys, Androids, and other mobile devices
  • Collaborative (user) programming and testing
  • Testing for Internet applications, e-commerce, and agile programming environments"
Roll on October.
