I’m still fiddling with the test framework, trying to get all the pieces to work together and work as desired. Today I met with one of the QAs who spends his time building it.
He reminded me of an old school clockmaker with the precision and focus he exuded as he checked my environment, diagnosed the problem, and then set me on the right course.
It made me think - what does it take to be a craftsman instead of just a hacker. Love? Patience? A desire to build instead of take apart?
