    난 어이해 개발 직종에서 STE(Software Test Engineer)로...(2)

    물론 테스터도 필요하다는 단순한 생각만으로 제 커리어를 변경했다고 한다면 거짓말이겠죠. 말그대로 <10%입니다. 사실 제가 원한 것은 커리어의 변경보다는 언제부턴가 낮아지기 시작한 개발 자체에 대한 흥미와 그로인한 심리적인 공황의 해소였습니다. 사실은 꼭 직업을 바꾸거나 직장 자체를 바꾸지 않고도 가능한 일이기도 했겠죠. 개발일을 하다가 흥미가 떨어진 것은 아마도 이성을 사귀면서 갖는 권태기 비슷한 것이었을 것 같습니다. 어떤 분은 권태기가...

    Early Christmas Present

    My platinum box from Valve showed up today with a new Half-Life cap, the soundtrack CD, a bumper sticker, three posters, and a (sorely needed) strategy guide. Good stuff. My daughter has dibs on the Alyx poster. [Listening to: Dark Piano Short...

    In our test case world, we assume a test case fails, unless we log pass. We changed our way of thinking a while ago, where we used to assume a test case passes, unless we log a failure. I wish I could give an example of a bug I’ve caught because of the...
