Promoting Evil Tester Talks Conference Talk and Webinar Archive

TLDR; I have an archive of webinars and talks with extra material bundled as a ‘course’.

I updated my “Evil Tester Talks” Online Talk Archive and realised that I hadn’t actually promoted it through my blog. Too busy creating content and writing talks.

But since I just added two talks and one webinar to the archive, it seemed the right time to promote it.

Testability vs Automatability - in theory (Free Bonus Video Inside)

TLDR; Testability is for humans. Automatability (Automatizability) is for applications.

I was doing some research for my upcoming Eurostar webinar and I encountered a few videos and posts of people who were using ‘testability’ to refer to the ability for the application to support automated execution.

I didn’t think that was appropriate. I’d rather distinguish between Testability and Automatizability. The more popular form of Automatizability seems to be Automatability.
