The Renaissance Thinker – Øredev 2008

by Alex Peck on April 2nd, 2009

In chapter 2 of my PhD thesis I considered the parellel between physically based computer animation and the renaissance art bourne out of scientific enquiry. I recall being quite interested in this at the time, but looking back failed to convert a considerable amount of research into more than a sentence.

James Bach makes a more thought provoking comparison between popular opinion throughout the renaissance and conventional testing wisdom. In particular, he makes some solid points about exploratory testing vs static scripts, and how you can improve tests as you learn more about the problem. As a multidisciplinarian, I also subscribe to the idea that you can apply ideas from many seemingly unrelated fields.
