Testing the waters is one thing, but Teresa Reynolds is in serious danger of going overboard. Feeling down on herself after a breakup with her ultra-critical boyfriend, Teresa arrives in Crescent Cove, Oregon, for a weekend getaway. The trouble is, her ex-boyfriend´s claims that she´s uninteresting and unworthy of love have left her wishing she could be someone else. Then a chance encounter with a cute guy on the beach gives her the opportunity to reinvent herself. Curt Mason is spending the summer avoiding women and getting over a broken heart. When he meets Térèse from Paris on the beach in Crescent Cove, his vow quickly goes out with the tide. Who is this mysterious woman, and why is he suddenly wracking his brain to remember every bit of French he learned back in high school just to try to impress her? Being Térèse seems to bring out the best in Teresa, until her little game turns into a French knot of deception. Does she dare let Curt meet the person God made her to be? Crescent Cove.

American Book Award WinnerLuther Albright is a devoted father and a designer of dams, a self-controlled man who believes he can engineer happiness for his family by sheltering them from his own emotions. But when an earthquake shakes his Sacramento home, the world Luther has constructed with such care begins to tilt: His son´s behavior becomes increasingly bizarre and threatening, his loving wife seems to grow distant, the house he built with his own hands shows its first signs of decay, and a dam of his design comes under investigation for structural flaws exposed by the tremors. Nightmarish connections begin to whisper at Luther from the most innocent of places as debut novelist MacKenzie Bezos tightens her net of psychological suspense around the reader with bravura skill. This is a harrowing portrait of an ordinary man who finds himself tested and strives not to be found wanting. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Brian Sutherland.

But a classroom conflict forces Kai to put Ms. Opal´s actions out in the open. Soon Kai has a new problem: People don´t believe him.

In a 40-year career as an oil and gas investment analyst and as an investment banker and strategic adviser on petroleum-sector mergers, acquisitions, and financings, Thomas A. Petrie has witnessed dramatic changes in the business. In Following Oil, he shares useful lessons he has learned about domestic and global trends in population and economic growth, a maturing resource base, variable national energy policies, and dynamic changes in geopolitical forces - and how these variables affect energy markets. More important, he applies those lessons to charting a course of energy development for the nation as the 21st century unfolds. Addressing the current need for greener, more sustainable energy sources, Petrie points to recent large domestic gas discoveries and the use of new technologies such as horizontal drilling to unlock unconventional hydrocarbons. With these new sources, the United States can increase production and ensure itself enough oil and gas to sustain economic growth during the next several decades. Petrie urges the pursuit of cleaner fossil fuel development in order to buy the time... The book is published by University of Oklahoma Press. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Stuart Appleton.

These days, more and more software development projects are being carried out using agile methods like Scrum. Agile software development promises higher software quality, a shorter time to market, and improved focus on customer needs.However, the transition to working within an agile methodology is not easy. Familiar processes and procedures change drastically. Software testing and software quality assurance have a crucial role in ensuring that a software development team, department, or company successfully implements long-term agile development methods and benefits from this framework. This book discusses agile methodology from the perspective of software testing and software quality assurance management. Software development managers, project managers, and quality assurance managers will obtain tips and tricks on how to organize testing and assure quality so that agile projects maintain their impact. Professional certified testers and software quality assurance experts will learn how to work successfully within agile software teams and how best to integrate their expertise.Topics include:Agile methodology and classic process modelsHow to plan an agile projectUnit tests and test first approachIntegration testing and continuous integrationSystem testing and test nonstopQuality management and quality assuranceAlso included are five case studies from the manufacturing, online-trade, and software industry as well as test exercises for self-assessment.This book covers the new ISTQB Syllabus for Agile Software Testing and is a relevant resource for all students and trainees worldwide who plan to undertake this ISTQB certification.
How do successful agile teams deliver bug-free, maintainable softwareiteration after iteration? The answer is: By seamlessly combining development and testing. On such teams, the developers write testable code that enables them to verify it using various types of automated tests. This approach keeps regressions at bay and prevents ´;testing crunches´which otherwise may occur near the end of an iterationfrom ever happening. Writing testable code, however, is often difficult, because it requires knowledge and skills that cut across multiple disciplines. In Developer Testing, leading test expert and mentor Alexander Tarlinder presents concise, focused guidance for making new and legacy code far more testable. Tarlinder helps you answer questions like: When have I tested this enough? How many tests do I need to write? What should my tests verify? You´ll learn how to design for testability and utilize techniques like refactoring, dependency breaking, unit testing, data-driven testing, and test-driven development to achieve the highest possible confidence in your software. Through practical examples in Java, C#, Groovy, and Ruby, you´ll discover what worksand what doesn´t. You can quickly begin using Tarlinder´s technology-agnostic insights with most languages and toolsets while not getting buried in specialist details. The author helps you adapt your current programming style for testability, make a testing mindset ´;second nature,´ improve your code, and enrich your day-to-day experience as a software professional. With this guide, you will Understand the discipline and vocabulary of testing from the developer´s standpoint Base developer tests on well-established testing techniques and best practices Recognize code constructs that impact testability Effectively name, organize, and execute unit tests Master the essentials of classic and ´;mockist-style´ TDD Leverage test doubles with or without mocking frameworks Capture the benefits of programming by contract, even without runtime support for contracts Take control of dependencies between classes, components, layers, and tiers Handle combinatorial explosions of test cases, or scenarios requiring many similar tests Manage code duplication when it can´t be eliminated Actively maintain and improve your test suites Perform more advanced tests at the integration, system, and end-to-end levels Develop an understanding for how the organizational context influences quality assurance Establish well-balanced and effective testing strategies suitable for agile teams Normal 0 false false false EN-US X-NONE X-NONE
Der Trend zu agilen Vorgehen ist ungebrochen Dieser Trend geht auch am Softwaretest nicht spurlos vorüber. Nachdem die Bedeutung des Tests in agilen Projekten unumstritten ist, treten jetzt vor allem die Professionalisierung und die Integration der einzelnen Mitarbeiter in den rollenübergreifenden Tätigkeiten des agilen Vorgehens in den Vordergrund. Die klassischen Rollenbilder des Tests verschwimmen und gehen ineinander über. Die Eigenverantwortung der Tester steigt. Für den klassischen Tester bedeutet dies eine Bereicherung und Aufwertung seiner Rolle, da er auch Aufgaben und Tätigkeiten anderer Professionen übernimmt. - Der Stellenwert des Teams - Die Crux mit den Werkzeugen in agilen Projekten - Die sieben schlechtesten Ideen für die Testautomatisierung - Testmethoden im agilen Umfeld - Tester: Generalist vs. Spezialist? Welches sind nun aber die Aufgaben des Softwaretests in agilen Projekten? Wie sind diese in unterschiedlichen agilen Vorgehensweisen - wie etwa Scrum oder Kanban - zu organisieren? Welche Bedeutung haben Testwerkzeuge in diesem Kontext? Wie grenzen sich die Verantwortlichkeiten gegeneinander ab oder wirken synergetisch zusammen? Auf diese sehr konkreten Fragen, die sich im operativen Projektgeschehen immer wieder stellen, liefert dieses Buch mögliche Antworten, ergänzt durch bewährte Ansätze aus der Praxis.
