Mr Roboto

Posted on 31st March 2007

Following my interviews yesterday for other roles within the company, I've been offered the role of QA Automation Analyst. An unusual role in that I'm going to be looking at ways to enable the automation of current test procedures, so we can have complete regression tests running overnight, allowing the testers to concentrate on edge cases and the like.

It's pretty much going to be a similar excise to automating CPAN Testing, so I should be quite suited to it. I've been surprised that there isn't already some automation, as it's been talked about for some time. I guess they've just needed someone like me to be around to take advantage of :)

It will add more validity to me going to conferences, talking about testing, and being involved in testing workshops, etc, so that makes me happier. If I'd stayed in a traditional development role, it might have been more difficult to justify several people going to YAPC::Europe. This way it'll just be me from the QA department.

The Day the World Went Away

Posted on 30th March 2007

For the past two weeks I've been at risk of redundancy. It's not been a very inspiring time. Privately I could say much more, but publically I think I will have to leave it at that ... for now.

Out Of Nowhere

It's always nice to get a project finished. I've been planning to rewrite my personal site for over a year, and finally this is the result. There's still plenty to add and improve, but at least it's finally replaced that 1998 version!

Where's My Thing?

Posted on 26th March 2007

So here is where it begins. Not sure where this going to go, but then nobody really knows where anything goes.

I had thought to post my non-techie stuff here, but I'll probably post whatever comes into my head, so apologies for that! Expect random musings, rants and general points of interest, together with the occasional decent photo, that I manage to take as I slowly learn how to use a camera again. I used to take tons of concert photos when I was on tour, but trying to do the same with a digital camera is proving rather difficult. Still, it's fun :)
