The biggest frustration: When the tool is not working on my laptop! It is not working! Why? Is it my installation? My OS? Me?
One pet peeve with testing tools in general: How can I SHOULD use it (not CAN use it)? Ok I can do that but is it the main purpose? Example: automation tools is the tool fitting right with my company/team test strategy?
Empathy: one team, one strategy. Tools can not be design just for me
We can give advise/feedback to others on how we use the tool: “it it a good tool for that but not for that, XXX is better if you want to…”
People who say the tool is bad or don’t like the tool… without actually trying it.
People should respect others choices more often, Example: some people prefer low-code tools, some prefer full coding tools and both are fine. Both get the job done. It doesn’t matter what you pick as long as you get the job done.
People should sometimes listen to more podcasts or conference talks or just people in general. Listen to their opinions and accept them.
Too many options and it isn’t clear what the difference is between them and what fits well in my case. You have to literally try them all out and with that comes the problem “Why isn’t it working on MY machine?”.
If you find something which doesn’t work send feedback or create an issue. The problem you encounter might not be known but is easy to fix.
Share, share, share, and listen, listen, listen. We are all one community and we can, should, and try to learn from each other.
My biggest frustration is with low/no code testing tools. They take away flexibility, don’t have proper debuggers, their “code”/output is hard to reuse;version;refactor etc. I prefer to avoid them as mentioned in my posts below. The clueless management types seem to like them very much, especially after they get dazzled by the slick marketing teams of such tools.
Biggest frustration is people will always complain about a certain tool after one or two practice.
My solution to such issue is:
Getting ideas from different tools to base on what people demand to create a unique that come close to solve every problems.
