Every week I come across some great articles. Here are some of the posts I feel you will enjoy reading as much as I did.

There are so many little gems in this 1999 interview of Jeff Bezos on David Sheff’s blog.

What is the difference between Severity and Priority of bugs? Even though they are different, you can have different combinations which make it harder to decide which bug to fix. Dan Emmons explains the different combinations in a very clear way.

Data seeding is critical for achieving isolated test runs. Viktor Slavchev walks us through the multiple ways of setting up data for automated checks.

There are a lot of articles out there which say that we should take a mobile-first approach for our site or app. Matt Anderson shows a few examples of where this categorisation starts to break and why we should look at device capabilities instead.

Even if people know hat the right thing is, people will always choose the more convenient thing. Jason Lengstorf explains why we don’t need to convince others that something is the right thing to do. We just need to make it easier to do the thing we want done than to do anything else.

Statistics are unhelpful without context. Robert Heaton dissolves some common examples of Simpson’s paradox with better framing.

Hope you enjoy reading these articles as much as I did.
