This is my very first podcast.

The reason I’m starting this podcast is to give you first-hand information about topics related to testing. It’s one thing to read it in a book and imagine what is like and another to hear it from somebody doing that job every day.

You will listen to BA’s, QA’s, Leads, Project Managers, speakers at conferences, developers, IT recruiters – people who have something to say about testing. The sky is the limit! I hope you enjoy it.

Andrea Macri is a Business Analyst and Team Lead at one of the major banks in Toronto. Because she has been interviewing people in the last few weeks, I thought it would be interesting having her in my podcast, revealing some of the questions she asked and what is her perspective on the interviewing process.
