In June of last year I blogged here sharing that I had created a resource page on my website with a listing of mnemonics. I spent many hours and was excited to find a sizable list at the time. It seems the software testing community has been busy since then crafting new mnemonics and revising existing ones. After tweeting about Nancy’s new SPIES mnemonic last night I received a bunch of emails and tweets with updates to the listing.
