Overheard on Slashdot

A boss of mine once said this:

Class A people hire class A people

Class B people hire class C people

I think that is spot on.


Some other good links I’ve run across lately- a story about how supporting an existing system can be more difficult than the system itself needs to be. Some insights on unit testing, and a small cautinary tale about the perils of investing a lot of energy in GUI-testing. You’ll never get humans completely out of the loop, so take advantage of the time that they’re in there.

I’ve gotten shanghaied by the Dallas PHP user group into pulling together a full GUI testing presentation to complement the unit testing presentation I gave and that Tommy and I recently reprised.

I think I’ll look at it in two ways:

…and making sure to emphasize how GUI automation dovetails with code-level unit testing.

Guitar Hero for ummm- Guitars?

ZOMG! It’s just what I was looking for, except not quite. If they put in chord-charts and/or actual note-reading, it’d be perfect. Luckily I’ve advanced quite a bit on the note-reading that I can play most songs that I come across, including ones in different keys (ie: that have non-explicit accidentals due to the key signature). More videos as I get time.

And for those following along at home, yes this is about the third post in three days. Do not adjust your feed readers, I only hope this doesn’t mean my next post will be in April. :^)

MS + Yahoo! == Crazy Delicious?

So I come back from Mexico to find that:

Don’t ask my opinion on either of these matters - I’ve got nothing valuable to add to the conversation. I do notice a distinct lack of funny logos combining the two company’s names. Behold my contribution!

A kindler, gentler Mycrosoft. Capitalizing on their incursions into “My Desktop”, “My Computer”, and “My Network”, MSFT is seeking to expand it’s dominance into “My Internet” and “My Company” with a new joint venture called “MyCrosoft” (powered by Yahoo!)

Comments? You know how to reach me. :^) More updates and pictures from México coming shortly.
