Believe it or not, no, that's not the opening to a joke. It is, instead, the beginning of a story.

I'd like focus this blog in 2014 on “hard” tester skills - to get past vague generalizations and slogans. (If the ideal is the T-shaped tester, with broad general skills that are shallow and a deep speciality in test - well, how exactly do you get that deep line in testing? What testers do, and how can they do it well?)

In my previous blog post, I pointed out that skills in testing matter. These skills are a bit like muscle memory; they can be learned by practice and attention to detail.

Now we come into the rub -- that you can’t practice test skills the way you can, say, hitting a ball or dunking a basket. Once you’ve tested the system once and know where the bugs are, a re-test exercise is trivial.

Or is it?

In his tutorial at Better Software Conference East, Jeff Payne covered how to get started with security testing, introducing foundational security testing concepts and how to apply those concepts with free and commercial tools and resources.
