RIP Philo

Everything is a unit test these days

Our QA guy labels all his tasks as being unit tests.

Including before-after manual data comparisons.

Thank you for playing buzzword bingo.

The last place I worked we had a business guy that would repeat technical terms he heard from the developers without understanding what they meant.

I always thought it would have been amusing to feed him some bullshit terms and watch him repeat it in front of the team.

Does he use a xUnit framework to implement his tests? Then it's easy to see the source of his misunderstanding.

Manager: I read an article. Unit testing is the big thing. You guys need to be doing more unit testing.

QABob: (Starts labeling every task as Unit Testing.)

Manager: Bob here is a real go-getter! Backbone of this company. That's why I'm promoting him.

Well, where I work we can call them anyway as long as they work. Told you I got congratulated for spending two weeks on a single line of code.

Now I was planning to spend a month (still on roll if you know Scotty) to change some regression tests to unit tests. Two weeks have passed already and I can see I won't get scolded by the end of a full month.

What bus would you rather take to Mars? One that delivers you in 10 minutes only one in 1000 of them gets lost in space, or the one that takes 100 years to deliver you on Alpha Centauri? And doesn't miss.

I'm working on a new gaming web site. Have you heard of "Hot or Not"? It's kind of similar. My new site will be called "Bot or Drunk Romanian".

A couple years ago I had a gig where the company had hired a whole team of Indians to program a bot that would post randomly generated incoherent messages on web forums.

The project's cost had gotten out of control. I came in to  fix it.

The plan I had was genius. It saved them millions per year and improved the quality of the bot. I fired the indian team and used 1/10 the money to open a free web cafe in Bucharest.
