We had our first meet of the year http://www.meetup.com/Thessaloniki-Java-Meetup-Group/events/234154914/ of the Thessaloniki Java Meetup Group. BTW I greatly enjoyed the talk. I always feel like a true weirdo when using multiline bash one-liners in my daily work:) . It was nice to see that I am not the only one doing that!
My thanks to Prof. Spinelis! @CoolSWEng
During the Q&A part of the talk one of our members, Dimitris Keramidas made a really interesting question that got me thinking. I have known many developers that have pondered upon this question – me included. If I remember correctly Prof. Spinellis had mentioned how we could use an automated testing infrastructure to help when debugging and in general how useful an automated testing culture is to the process of developing software. The question was something along the lines of the following:
Since testing is so useful, we who work in organizations that do not use it, how can we convince our manager, project manager, BA, bosses, stakeholders that doing testing is a useful thing and convince them to adopt it in our work?
