Famous Movie Quotes applied to software engineering - Dirty Harry



Do you feel luck punk? Well.... Do Ya?


I've spoke of it in my very first blog post, about a developer who blindly put their code live without any testing, without any consideration for the side effects that may have been caused by his changes. I've got to think that before he put it live, that he asked himself "Do I feel lucky?" there's no other explanation for why he did what he did!

So now, if anyone were to come to me and say I'm putting this live, without any testing (ignoring the gates that he/she would have to go through in order to get anything live..) I'd have to say to them:

You've got to ask yourself one question: 'Do I feel lucky?' Well, do ya, punk?

What is a PBI?

After my last post, I had the question of what is a PBI... so I thought i'd write a short blog post about what they are and why they are used.

A PBI is an acronym for Product Backlog Item. It is a description of a piece of work that your SCRUM team will develop and deliver. When you have a list of Product Backlog Items, you then refer to that collective list as a Product Backlog.

The product backlog is often prioritised and yourteam will work through each PBI, and release on a regular schedule... I am however going deep into the world of Agile development, which isn't entirely what this post is about, so I will stop myself now.

A Product Backlog Item is made up of the following:

Title - This is often a one liner that gives the team an idea of what the PBI is about, although it can just be an ID for the item and the team work off of that.

Description - Breaks down the PBI in a bit more detail, and can be written in any style, however I prefer it to be written as follows:

Dealing with Selenium WebDriver Driver.Quit crashes (Where chromedriver.exe is left open)

We recently came across a problem with Selenium not quitting the webdriver and this would then lock a file that was needed on the build server to run the builds.

We were using Driver.Quit() but this sometimes failed and would leave chromedriver.exe running. I looked around and found this was a common issue that many people were having. We (I say we, as we came to the solution through paired programming), came up with the following, that would encapsulate the driver.quit inside a task and if this task takes longer than 10 seconds, then it will clean up any processes started by the current process, in the case of the issue on the build server, it would kill any process started by Nunit.

[AfterTestRun]
        public static void AfterTestRun()
        {
            var nativeDriverQuit = Task.Factory.StartNew(() => Driver.Quit());
            if (!nativeDriverQuit.Wait(TimeSpan.FromSeconds(10)))
            {
                CleanUpProcessByInheritance();
            }

Famous Movie Quotes applied to Software Engineering - Jaws

You're gonna need a bigger boat? How can that relate to Engineering?

Firstly, let me ashamedly admit, that I've never seen the whole of Jaws all the way through. It's on my list of films to watch, but whether I get round to it, is another matter!



Anyway, to apply this to engineering, it's almost like "you're gonna need more testers/developers"...

We hear this all too often when trying to push releases out the door, let's throw men at it... However, as we all know, a bigger boat/more men... isn't always the answer, it's not a guarantee of quality, or even a guarantee of getting things done quicker.

If you have a task that will take 2 hours, simply having 2 people work on it doesn't mean that it is halved, in fact often, the time taken to do the task remains at 2 hours, but the maintainability and the knowledge around that area is increased, so it's a price, in my opinion that is often worth paying.
