Favorite resources – round I

Estimated Reading Time: 3 minutes

As those who read my posts probably noticed already, I’m quite a heavy user of del.icio.us. I won’t go into what it is, am sure those interested can go there or google it to see whether they like it or not.
I’m playing around with Google Notebook as an alternative, with better google integration obviously, albeit less taxonomy/tagging capabilities.

In any case, I highlighted some of my favourite resources under the rndblog_resources tag, and provided some notes to accompany the links and explain why I find them essential in the favorites list of anyone interested in the contents of this blog (and probably for some people who are NOT that interested in this blog, but then again, they won’t find be here…)

There are more gems in my account, so probably expect future rounds based on existing and new resources I find. I’d love to hear about more resources along those lines – either comment or suggest them to me via the del.icio.us network.
Anyone interested to track my favorites is welcome to join my network

Now for the resources themselves (copy paste from a del.icio.us linkroll page)

David V. Lorenzo posts favorite interviewing questions of people on his Career Intensity Blog

Here is his post about mine…

At the risk of hinting the people who I interview in the future, also check out my interviewing tag on del.icio.us for a lot of resources on the matter.

Why am I open about this?
One of my main beliefs in interviewing btw is to try and understand behaviourial aspects in addition to skills. Someone might get a head start for the skills questions if he prepares, but I think in that area if someone is diligent enough to research his interviewer, go and read multiple resources, learn enough to know the subject, he’s getting extra credit right out of the gate…
For the behaviourial aspects the discussion is more flowing, and no preparation can really help you there.

I cannot finish a post about interviewing without mentioning Johanna Rothman. She’s writing the Hiring Technical People blog, and wrote the Hiring The Best Knowledge Workers, Techies & Nerds: The Secrets & Science Of Hiring Technical People book. Check it out.

Fogbugz best practices and other resources

Estimated Reading Time: 1 minute

I intend to post some reference to resources I’m fond of in the area of R&D;, QA, methodology and the like.

In the meantime, anyone who’s interested in what I have to say will probably see some value in looking at FogBugz Online Documentation. I was referred there by Zeljko Filipin’s blog which is aggregated by http://www.testingreflections.com.

In addition, my del.icio.us links might provide good resources. see
