Book: How to Break Software

07/03/2012
Finally I got around to read a book that is actually related to my area of study, computer science. Although software testing is not my main area of expertise but it never hurts to freshen up on practical skills such as testing.

How to Break Software is a very practical guide to go all out Godzilla on software and break it in every way possible. In his book James Whitaker gives very practical advice on how to systematically and methodologically dissect the inner works of software.

One very good advice Whitaker gives is to very carefully plan testing goals and how much effort should be expended before calling it tested enough and then rigorously work towards the defined testing goals.

So next time you are testing some peace of software set clear attainable goals and then test the crap out of that software.
