Is this really "What we expect in 2013"?
I was browsing through the January edition of SDTimes magazine (yes, the real dead-tree version), and found an article titled "What we expect in 2013". In it, the editors make a few predictions about what the new year will bring for the Software Development community.
Here's an excerpt that caught my eye:
I've been reading similar predictions for years, and I've yet to see most of this happen.
Development teams will focus on testing. Whether driven there by mobility or by the cloud, we will see decreased corporate and customer tolerance for buggy or insecure software. Developers will get more test training, more testers will be hired, and more outsourced testing services will be launched. It's about time.
To me (except for the part about 'more outsourced testing services will be launched'), I think this is all wishful thinking.
What about you? Do you see any evidence that corporations or individuals are becoming less tolerant of bugs? Are your Developers getting more test training? Are you hiring more testers?
Most developers I've been around have no interest in doing any kind of testing (even unit) even with "training", so I think you're right - it's wishful thinking there.
