Gerald M. Weinberg Book Giveaway, Week 3!
The month of Jerry Weinberg marches on!
We are waiting for the winner of Week 2 to confirm with us, but in the meantime, let’s forge ahead with Week 3!
Gerald M. Weinberg, or Jerry as he is often called, is a longtime and well-respected computer scientist and fiction author. Some of his books are perennial bestsellers and he still wins awards for his contributions to his field. Not only are testing, quality, and consulting topics about which Jerry writes, but he also creates smart, interesting genre fiction, too. Here’s how the contest works:
Use the form below to choose any or all of the four ways to enter. But first, make sure you’re cool with Jerry getting your email address for an occasional email. (He will NEVER sell your info. Not in a million years.)
If you win, you can choose one book from this list of Gerald M. Weinberg’s non-fiction and fiction works (note that when the Week 2 winner chooses a book, this list will be reduced to five books):
- Quality Software Management: Systems Thinking (Volume 1)
- Perfect Software and Other Illusions about Testing
- The Secrets of Consulting
- Freshman Murders
- The Aremac Project
- First Stringers: Eyes that Do Not See
I like the books of Jerry, as they have heavily influenced my development of Software Developer, technical leader and manager. I got interested in the books of Jerry first after reading Kent Becks Extreme Programming Explained and seeing there influence diagrams.
After that I read the series on Quality Software Management and Secrets of Consulting and get hooked.
I do agree with Jeff de Luca that books of Jerry give one a competitive advantage.
