Five For Friday – November 24

  • The US holiday is a time for us all to reflect on what we’re thankful for. This has been a year of transition, and I’m thankful for my family supporting me changing jobs, and for Unity for giving me a wonderful place to land.
  • Quote of the week is, “Automated user interface testing is placed at the top of the test automation pyramid because we want to do as little of it as possible.” This is from Mike Cohn (inventor of the automation testing pyramid) emphasizing that while UI tests have a place, a little goes a long way. Too many people forget this.
  • Dan Pink has a podcast!
  • I discovered the Plantronics Focus headphones / headset while at Microsoft, and bought a used pair from eBay after I left. They’re comfortable, have great controls, and even pause and start music if you take them on and off. They’re a bit pricey, so look for a used set if you want to try them.
  • Finally, I’ve recently subscribed to Imperfect Produce – they deliver organic produce that’s not-quite perfect at a substantial discount. Personally, I don’t care if my potatoes are too big or my onions too small – the produce is fresh, organic and perfect on the tastebuds.

Leave some words for the weasel
