BABOK Guide v3: What’s New?

Now, it’s finally come true – as of September 30, 2016, the International Institute of Business Analysis (IIBA) launches their new certification program based on BABOK (Business Analysis Body of Knowledge) Guide Version 3. The new BABOK version first appeared eighteen months ago – in April 2015, but through all that time (till September 22, 2016), you could be certified based on the old certification program. What has changed?

How do you prepare an internal development program – part 1

Every company will always have operational challenges. They will always represent a priority because the purpose of every organization is to be profitable. However making a profit won’t always be easy. Internal or external constraints, the market or the level of resources it has at its disposal will always impact this objective. The question for people who are in support functions is how they can contribute to the profitability of the company?

Writing a simple analyzer using Roslyn – part 1

With the release of a new version of Studio (VS2015), each of us gained an opportunity to feel involved in the development of tools for developers. People from C #/VB compiler teams did an excellent job of "exhibiting" the compiler’s guts, which now allows us to write our own code analyzers, spending quite a reasonable amount of effort on it.

A short guide for newly appointed managers: The things to watch for

One of the first things I remember when I got my new job as a manager is the constant flow of congratulations, emails, smiley faces, likes, endorsements and even a salary raise together with a slightly bigger office.

Best practices when conducting a technical interview or a structured one

When you are in a managerial role you can seldom say that you don’t have enough to do: analyzing various areas, developing business plans, setting goals, monitoring performance, solving conflicts, making decisions, coaching subordinates etc. No wonder your schedule is so busy and the pressure you feel becomes an addiction. Of course, there is always something to do when it comes to managing people or projects and it’s perfect as long as you love it.

Migrating from JUnit 4 to JUnit 5: replacing rules with the extension model. Part 1

JUnit 5 Jupiter is the combination of the new programming model (annotations, classes, methods) and extension model for writing tests and extensions in JUnit 5. The Jupiter sub-project provides a test engine for running Jupiter based tests on the platform. In contrast to the previously existing runners and rules extension points in JUnit 4, the JUnit Jupiter extension model consists of a single, coherent concept: the Extension API.

How to start a career in testing?

Testing as a profession is gaining popularity and becoming more desirable. More and more people are willing to retrain and become IT specialists, because this area is developing and the highly paid work of the tester seems to be the most accessible. Indeed, it is easier to retrain as a tester than, for example, as a programmer. But over the past ten years the "entry threshold" in the profession has grown significantly. Yet it is still feasible to do so without going through many years of training.

Tester vs. Developer - part 1

A lot has been said about testers and programmers having different ways of thinking. It is quite obvious that testers look at the product from a different perspective than programmers. Often it is much easier to detect a mistake in the work of someone else than to see it in your own. That is why we need more or less independent testing.
