Julian Harty, one of our senior test engineers, is presenting a keynote at the STARWEST conference today (Wednesday, October 1) on Six Thinking Hats for Software Testers. Expanding on the Thinking Hats concept, originated many years ago by Edward De Bono and used by large numbers of people and various types of businesses, Julian's talk will add his experience and views about how Thinking Hats can be used in software testing. At Google, we have found it delivers breakthroughs in the short term and great results in the longer term -- one Googler called it the "universal unblocker."
For those of you unable to attend the conference, a video recording will be available. Julian has also written an article on this topic to appear in Better Software magazine within the next few months.
