Moving from cowboy coding to agile development

Friday, October 06, 2006


My mission to introduce automated testing at work is now finished. It is far from complete, but today was my last day there. In a couple of days I'll be working for another employer.

It seems I managed to plant a seed of interest in testing; some (now past) colleagues told me they are sorry that I didn't get further in introducing some tests and the testing process. That makes me feel that they have actually understood the importance of testing, but it also suggests that no one feels confident enough to continue the work on their own.

Then again, it's out of my hands now. I guess all I should be interested in is that my new employer is excited about agile development.
