Almost Paradise: Musings On Leaving California

I wrote this in October 2016 only to leave it unfinished.  During the last week, I received a notification of a post from Facebook a year ago when we were on a house hunt in Virginia. When I re-read the post, it still rang true for me, so I’ve decided to post it. Those of us… Continue reading Almost Paradise: Musings On Leaving California

Use "Golden Image" to test Big Ball Of Mud software systems


So I had a brief conversation on Twitter with Noah Sussman about testing a software system designed as a "Big Ball Of Mud" (BBOM).

We could talk about the technical definition of BBOM, but in practical terms a BBOM is a system where we understand and expect that changing one part of the system is likely to cause unknown and unexpected results in other, unrelated parts of the system. Such systems are notoriously difficult to test, but I have tested them long ago in my career, and I was surprised that Noah hadn't encountered this approach of using a "Golden

Bullshit fatigue

Usual Friday morning banter at work talking about the news that some "retired vice-admiral turns down US national security adviser offer".

"How is this even possible?" was my argument, "nobody checked with the guy?"

As I was ranting about how the amount of bullshit going around is bothering me, especially with the recent political landslides and very weird events in countries like Turkey, an esteemed colleague came up with the much needed diagnosis.

"May be you are suffering from bullshit fatigue?"

Spot on. I am suffering from bullshit fatigue...
