Chang meanwhile is very aware of the existence of Grid World and when he gains total global dominance he begins to cast his envious attention towards the digital utopia that exists below his feet. If he is unable to conquer Grid World then he will destroy it and everyone that is living there.

Can Grid World survive against an army that has over one million drug crazed soldiers and a genocidal leader? Will they fall the way of the nations on the planet’s surface or will Paul lead them to victory.

Who, if any, will survive?

The Agile Software Tester: Software testing in the agile world

Agile Software Testing for the modern world. Paperback and kindle versions available. While many organisations have adopted the agile framework fully with a carefully planned strategy and 100% company commitment which means they are now reaping the benefits gained there are still plenty of software companies out there who have, for one reason or another, not. These companies still ignore the agile framework methodology or they have simply placed a taskboard in the centre of the office and stated ‘there, we are agile’. While it is true that the agile methodology is not for everyone and not every software development project is suited to the framework it is, however, the way forward for the majority of companies who are involved in software development. As agile has grown in popularity and usage over the decades the amount of literature about the subject has also grown. However of the books currently available on the market focus on the project management or software development areas of the software development life cycle, there is still very little for the agile software tester to read. This is where this book comes into play, so get your copy now and enhance your mind.
