Thanks for mention, it was also a pleasure meeting you and congratulations for your new Twitter
I had an Twitter account since ages but I always forget its username or password
I remember when I went to the first testing conference as participant. everyone was talking about Twitter and many things are shared during the conference using its hashtag! So just when I come back home I decided to be active there, there’s a lot to learn feom the testing community in Twitter
Today I’ll speak in a remote conference (Journée agile) Belgium the place where I did my first talk 2 years ago and it will be my 10th talk.
It was a pleasure meeting likeminded people @kristof
Not sure if it’s bad or good thing finished my slide deck so late last night for today presentation (last minute preparation I started week ago designing ideas for this new talk) it was a bit stressful due to time pressures with other preparations and it was part of my talk driven development challenge.
Started my (temporary new job of QA Strategist) as a Tester first to understand the product and while learning about it I find many bugs/improvements since my forst day
My new team (of the coming permanent new job next September) invited me to their local community meetup to introduce me to the team
This was my first week back at a “normal job”, working “normal hours”.
It was a week of highs and lows. I liked the first week way more than I anticipated, but I was also confronted with some stubborn mental pathways in my brain. I’ll rise to the challenge and make the most out of this assignment.
I slept 7+ hours last night, which also hasn’t happened in a long time. Is this what it feels like to be human?
Upgraded our internal “test runner” utility so it is fully compatible with Robot Framework 4.0. It turned out to be a little more challenging than first thought but our new Python dev did really well and we got there after 4 or 5 quick iterations.
I finally got my 8 year old daughter interested in coding. I found a way to make it fun for her by making a game of it. She read and edited the source code (written in Go) to change the game dynamics a little. She then learned how to saved the code, compile and run the game in the shell.
In the prior week I was struggling mentally, with logging bugs that felt less important or less useful right now. “Log a better bug when the time is right and you know more” was going through my mind. Last week, in a demo, I accidentally showed I bug I had raised in August, thinking it will never get looked at. One person watching the demo raised the bug priority, the team are looking at it today.
Another plus is that I am starting to approach my goal of creating two E2E tests in one day
Had bad back pain entering the week, by the weekend I’m back to normal.
Still struggling mentally with the “PTSD” of working at home, finding I’m unable to get my mind out of lockdown.
On the plus side, I got the chainsaw started and happily cut down some very tiny trees for a friend - which got me out of the house, and I did manage to stay for a good long cuppa Yorkshire tea (No milk, no sugar). It felt good to share my fear.
