A short rant on the impact of pervasive connectivity on human consciousness.
In April of 2014, I was one of two Quality Advocates in Asynchrony writing automated tests. I’d worked with my team lead to create a process where I wrote automated regression tests in C# before they started a feature, and that body of tests would run with every code check-in, in addition to their unit tests. The effort paid off with a solid product where only 5% of our stories were bugs, and there were almost zero support requests once it was deployed at the client site. I wanted to replicate that success on other teams so I asked for an apprentice. My father had been apprenticed to a carpenter when he was just out of school, and he always spoke well of the experience. There’s no college degree in software QA, and everyone I know learned some testing folklore from a QA veteran.
