Automation Survey Follow-up

As promised in my last post about the automation survey results I wanted to come up with a follow-up to clarify our next steps in being more open for our activities, discussions, and also quarterly goals. Sorry, that it has been taken a bit longer but end of the quarter and especially the year is mostly packed with stuff to finish up. Also the all-hands work week in Orlando beginning of December hold me off from doing a lot real work. So lets get started with the mailing list topicContinue readingAutomation Survey Follow-up

Survey about sharing information inside the Firefox Automation team

Within the Firefox Automation team we were suffering a bit in sharing information about our work over the last couple of months. That mainly happened because I was alone and not able to blog more often than once in a quarter. The same applies to our dev-automation mailing list which mostly only received emails from Travis CI with testing results. Given that the team has been increased to 4 people now (beside me this is Maja Frydrychowicz, Syd Polk, and David Burns, we want to be more open again andContinue readingSurvey about sharing information inside the Firefox Automation team

Join our first Automation Training days on March 24/26

Building software is fun. Spending countless hours or even days on something to get it finally working. Helping someone who uses your software to speed-up the daily workflow. All that is fantastic and every developer loves that. But don’t let the dark side come up, when customers are pointing you to a lot of software defects. Are you still proud and will you continue the work as how you did it before? Most likely not. Or well, lets say at least not when quality is what you want to ship.Continue readingJoin our first Automation Training days on March 24/26

Results of our first “Ask an Expert” automation session

It’s was clearly a wow! The way how our first “Ask an Expert” session went was promising.

So what is that amazing on such a session? Given that in the past we as team were mostly working on Bugzilla to get a plan how toContinue readingResults of our first “Ask an Expert” automation session
