To enliven my journey to work this morning I listened to Scott Hanselman’s interview with James Bach, an international consultant on software testing. They were talking about James' new book Voyage of a Buccaneer-Scholar.
James has led an interesting life. He was kicked out of home when he was 14, so moved into a motel room with his computer. There he taught himself Assembly language programming. When he was 16, he dropped out of high school and started a career as a video game programmer.
