Wolf Pack – a collaborative test compilation Martin Jansson
You are part of a pack of wolves.
You are hungry and have not found food for several weeks.
When you move, you run covering lots of ground quickly.
You are out hunting, cooperating and collaborating with the rest of your pack.
You are seeking the big game, not a flea, nor a rabbit or rat.
An elk is ok, a mammoth is great, but you look for a stranded whale or a leviathan.
You might take note of the smaller game, but as a pack it is not your focus.
When you find tracks or clues of the bigger game, you howl and notify the rest of the pack.
As a pack, you circle and take down the prey.
The lone wolf is no hero in this context.
Can this be an effective compilation when you get a new build, as a form of smoke test, acceptance or regression test. It could train you in collaboration, not crying wolf for small prey, but instead wanting the bigger juice.
