1. Current State of Depcheck and Paths Forward

    Thu 30 October 2014 By Tim

    Depcheck is one of those things which is deceptively complicated. On the surface, it's such a simple thing: "figure out if the dep tree is broken" but reality makes the problem much more difficult and messy. We've recently deployed a rewrite of the old depcheck tool from AutoQA ...

  2. Taskotron Has Replaced AutoQA

    Mon 13 October 2014 By Tim

    It's getting on 2 years since I started working on the demo bits that would become the first demonstration of a system that would come to be known as Taskotron. Since that time, the project has gone through a name change, a lot of planning and more work than ...

  3. Taskotron Status, Questions and Answers

    Mon 26 May 2014 By Tim

    It's been a while since I've written anything about Taskotron and we've been pretty quiet in general, so it's about time that changed. There will be more posts about Taskotron details in the next several weeks but this one is more of an overview.

  5. An Initial Idea for Taskbot

    Fri 24 May 2013 By Tim

    I've been talking about QA and test automation but haven't really gone into much detail about what exactly I want to do. Hopefully, I've made a sufficiently strong case for a task automation system vs. a strict test automation system already but I'm open to other ...

  6. Down With Test Automation! Long Live Task Automation!

    Fri 24 May 2013 By Tim

  7. Rejecting QA as Quality Assurance

    Fri 24 May 2013 By Tim

    This is something I've said a few times before but not so much in a formal sense. It plays into some stuff I've been working on as of late and I figured it was about time to write about it.

    Wed 23 January 2013 By Tim

    I think this topic came up in the past but it was more of a "wouldn't it be cool if we did this" thing than an actual proposal. While at FUDCon Lawrence, we came up with a proposal to create a web form to assist in proposing blocker and ...
