Chris McMahon on experience reports, writing and one year at SSQ

If you’re a regular reader of or of software quality publications in general, you are bound to be familiar with the writing of Chris McMahon. He is one of our most frequent contributors, and certainly one who is valued both for his expertise in software quality as well as in writing.

In The software experience report: Record what you learn, McMahon describes how each job gives us an opportunity to learn and grow. He encourages each of us to take the time to record these experiences and share our learnings with others.

McMahon recently reached his one year mark of writing for SSQ with over 40 pieces of content. He honored us by noting that accomplishment in a recent post on his popular blog. McMahon acts as a mentor, particularly for those people in software quality who like to write. He facilitates a “writing about testing” network and hosts a conference for the same.  When asked why he does it, he comes up with a few answers. My favorite: “I believe strongly in giving away one’s best ideas.”
