Starting from scratch

I provide Software Quality Assurance – more about why I do what I do, and why will be in a future post.

So, at work I’ve spent the past couple years working on a particular product off and on as releases were issued. When I took the project over there were no test scripts. There were packets of screenshots with no real notation. I set about to build what I thought was a very efficient manner of testing what was represented in those screenshots.

It turns out however, that I have been operating under a mistaken belief. Over the past two weeks I have learned that ‘the business’ wants something else/other than what I’ve been doing, it just took till now to actually communicate it. This is going to essentially force a reboot around all that work I had already done, lead to some headaches and frustration. However, I feel I now know what they are looking for. I don’t know if they realize I’m going to give them exactly what they want.

There’s a reason why they say “be careful what you ask for.”
