A great new article series ‘When Support Calls: Helping Your Support Team To Help Your Customers’ by James Thomas, Chris George & Neil Younger. In this series, they introduce some support call basics, how to prepare for a call, ways to survive and even thrive on the call, how to end the call, and then think about what kinds of things can be done to cement what you learned afterwards.

A brilliant Masterclass with Franziska Sauerwein & Maaret Pyhäjärvi ‘Tips to Improve Collaboration Between Testers and Developers’. Throughout the evolution of software development, testers have struggled to be treated as equals and developers have lacked the understanding of why they should care.
