“No tendency is quite so strong in human nature as the desire to lay down rules of conduct for other people.” ~William Howard Taft There are way more case studies about disasters than success. And I don’t believe, as I have worked on some projects that on the face of it, ran poorly but still managed to deliver. It is very easy to dissect a project negatively - there is always room for improvement.
I keep reading/hearing statements about the purpose of test automation, and it’s starting to grate. What grates is hearing the same soundbites, as 10+ years ago, by people who seem more interested in raising their own public profile, than making real change. I don’t want to be pointed about this, if possible. I am aware it is easy to get caught up in something, such as perception of testing for example.
