TIL how in jruby to get the return type of an instance method on a java object:

# what does foo.instanceMethod return?
method = foo.java_class.java_instance_methods.detect {|m| m.name == 'instanceMethod'}
typeReturned = method.return_type.ruby_class

jruby 1.7.0, jdk7u11

I could do my non-coding work using only my N7 if I had to. I don't think I could do that with my phone. Dolphin browser + lastpass and text size plug in, Google drive, and K9 email client are big parts of the reasons.

The Thinking Tester, Evolved (good keynote video)

[I just sent this to folks where I work]

Here's one of the keynotes from the conference (http://www.associationforsoftwaretesting.org/conference/cast-2012/) I just attended:

CAST 2012 Keynote - The Thinking Tester, Evolved

Well worth 41 minutes, mostly worth the rest (some of the discussion is good, some not). Though there is a good comment starting at 1:00:38.

And don't miss Elisabeth's "soapbox" response to the question asked at 1:05:44

I recommend you watch it. I suggest maybe you get your manager to watch it :-)

Rooted my phone (dinc) earlier this week, and installed cyanogenmod stable this morning. So far, I've spent maybe 2 hours reinstalling, restoring, or replacing the various apps and config I think I need. Alarm clock, calendar sync, email, nav, gvoice, podcast player, PvZ.

Last night, I ranted a bit on twitter. Here are my posts:

if you are "committed to agile" but not committed to agile testing, are you committed to agile?

If there is a separate group of people dedicated to writing automated tests, then you probably are not doing agile testing.

If "testing" tasks are never done by people writing production code, then you probably are not doing agile testing.

If all of your test design turns into requirements for test automation, then you probably are not doing agile testing.

If you rely on subject-matter experts or product owners to specify all of your examples, then you probably are not doing agile testing.


Chris McMahon responded: I like that you say "probably". I don't fail many of those criteria, but I have failed some of them

I'll add one for this morning:

If the only thing the testers are doing is exploratory testing, then you probably are not doing agile testing.


You probably are not doing agile testing.

What do you all think?

I am way too amused by this

another thought:

A tester who wants to learn more about programming might find it valuable to sit in on a code review.

A programmer who wants to learn more about testing might find it valuable to sit in on a Session-Based Test Management session debrief.
