Something has struck me during my last couple of sprints. I'm not finding obvious bugs.
I've been with my current company about 10 months and during that time the developers have been slowly, but inexorably, building up unit tests and integration tests. We've now hit the point where the fruits of this labour are being shown.
We now have an environment where the Testing Dead cannot hide, where a tester can hone skills to an edge and truly thrive. And I do intend to thrive.
Although I know it wasn't done for me (it was done because we all want our product to be better than even we think it could be), I want to thank the team for getting us to this point. I think we are on the brink of a new era and I am very much looking forward to it.
