How do I put this? Sometimes you’ve got to test. Not talk about testing, not agonise over planning, but get stuck into adding value as fast as possible. In this blog post I investigate the popular restful-booker web service. From first impressions to reviewing the shippable quality of the software. We’ll imagine I’ve dropped into the project late, I know nothing about what’s under test, and I’ve only got two hours. Let’s see how it goes!
Sometimes I write things in Slack conversationally that might be useful to refer to later or reflect on. Going forwards I’ll try to remember to add them here.
Confession time: I’m a thief. I’ll steal anything valuable from anywhere I can find it. My job, my colleagues, even strangers. I’m an expert at hiding my loot, smuggling it from one place to the next. I’m also not going to stop. All I ask is that you hear me out before turning me in…
Hacking: it’s not magic, even us muggles can do it.
