The typical way a software tester in SDLC vs in Agile is very different. I find it a little bit difficult ensuring quality in Scrum environment given the movement as well as the changing priority. Tell me about your experience with Scrum or Agile.

It often is not straight forward; either you have good coverage but longer duration OR shorter duration but bigger risks. If you say that you have an automation coming in, make sure you have the budget and product reviewed by an expert performance leader.

R.... Anyone into Big Data?
 
Learn R programming on GDL

Watch these videos: R 1.1 - Initial Setup and Navigation

Most developers learn the R programming language in bits and pieces, which can leave significant knowledge gaps. To help fill these gaps, we created a series of Introduction to R Programming videos, brought to you by +GDL. These videos provide a solid foundation for programming tools, data manipulation, and functions in the R language and software. 

The series of short videos is organized into four subsections: Intro to R, Loading Data + More Data Formats, Data Processing and Writing Functions. We created a YouTube playlist so you can watch them all: R 1.1 - Initial Setup and Navigation.

One important aspect that crops up from time to time is conflict resolution and managing difficult communication. It is imperative that we understand and listen to other's opinion. And every time it happens, it is new and there is always something to learn out of the experience.

Cool... my first share to you guys is that there is a course available to the public (free of charge) by Asian Productivity Organization (APO). It is on Integrated Management System and Green Productivity. You might say it is not related to software testing, but knowing the governing process is important as well. And nothing to lose if you have the time. By the way you get certified if you pass it!! Good luck folks.

Friendly staff and the mix platter is a must try for newbie to Greek styled food. It gave me a great range of variety to explore and waiters are all ready to answer any questions if you have any. Mix platter is quite a plate and it is good for two :) If you are in that area, you just have to try this place.

Got most of my shopping list items here. The service may not be great but I didn't expect a lot. Generally everything is OK.

Nice mall, enough variety. A mall is a mall though and this is a typical high end mall.
