As many of you know I don’t do direct advertising on TESTHEAD. At times, though, I do give plugs for things my friends are doing or things I think would be noteworthy and interesting. This would be one of those plugs :).

The folks at QASymphony are having Matt Heusser present a webinar on Test Estimation Hacks, April 21, 2016 from 2:00 p.m. – 3:00 p.m. Eastern time.

First off, this is not a sales presentation. Matt is doing this based on concepts and practical approaches that are tool agnostic. You’ll leave with a half-dozen ways to think about estimating, from “can you finish it by lunch?” to full blown new product development and planning. The techniques themselves can be applied by anyone, and Matt will explore why coming up with time estimates in testing can be so counter intuitive — and what to do about it. It’s not an endorsement of QASymphony or a plug for them, either. They are hosting the webinar.

Matt is a thorough presenter, he’s engaging, and he does his homework. Anyone who has listened to the “TWiST” podcast or “The Testing Show” knows what I’m talking about.

In short, if you can attend, do so. If you can tell others about it, do that, too :).
