Guilt on Good Friday
I'm not Catholic. I grew up churched in a little Anabaptist
twig off the Protestant branch of Christianity.
Not having grown up Catholic, I lack the necessary
experience to really be able to feel guilty about everything. But a
sense of brotherhood with my Catholic friends compels me to try to feel guilty
about as many things as I can.
But for now I will mention just one thing: I feel guilty
that we are not using TestComplete. Our
team's doctrinal statement says we believe in automated testing. We are
religious users of NUnit. We have around a dozen more automated testing apps
which are a part of our process. But we currently have no way of automatically
testing the user interface of our product.
I am extremely impressed with AutomatedQA and their
product. We should be using it, but thus far, we are not. I am scum. I am a
pitiful wretch. My actions are inexcusable.
However, I take comfort in the knowledge that some of you
are even more depraved than I am. You are not even using NUnit and you know
that you should be. Shame on you.
Regardless of your religious background or beliefs, today is
a great day to feel guilty about how horrible your team's development processes
are. Repent and get your life in order.
