So I am woefully behind on all of my technology podcast listening ever since I discovered JapanesePod101. But if you have not already done so, you need to go out and listen to the RedMonk / NetManage podcast from RmR on Incremental SOA.
James and Cote talk to Archie Roboostoff of NetManage and actually discuss small scale, bottom up SOA implementations as a viable approach! It’s refreshing – though a meaty SOA strategy does require some amount of top down support, you can still have a get-things-done attitude and deliver.

The book Agile Software Development Quality Assurance was just published this week:
I contributed a chapter on Test-Driven Development, written from an industry perspective. Many other contributions were academic in nature – interesting in their own right, but I was pleased to add an on-the-ground flavor to the book.
I was shocked at the pricing however – evidently IGI only likes shelf space in select university libraries. My next publishing endeavor will no doubt be more consumer-friendly.
