If you want to know about rapid software testing, the man to follow is Michael Bolton. He’s the first of my chosen three great testers to feature. Michael travels the world teaching the craft of software testing to businesses and individuals. He’s a prolific writer and I like to keep up with his many articles, essays and work. (See too @
michaelbolton on Twitter.)
Mark Tomlinson, second up, also writes and consults on the topics of software testing and performance. His blog in particular ‘tells it like it is’ on subjects ranging from real world performance testing to website benchmarking. Mark is one bookmark I’ll never delete. And another great Twitter follow: @mtomlins
Last and never least, Lisa Crispin (@lisacrispin on Twitter), who in her own words “brings agile joy to the software testing world and testing joy to the agile development world.” As a testing practitioner, it’s her job to help traditional testers make the transition to agile teams, and she does it very well. I’m a mule man myself, but donkey time sounds pretty cool too.

So, to my 3 great testers I say ‘take a bow’ and you are more than welcome to guest feature on my blog anytime.
So here are my lyrics so far:
“On the third day of Christmas,
Frank Borland gave to me
Three great testers,
Two Borland stars,
And a copy of Turbo Pascal.”
