Apprenticeship Patterns Blog – Retreat into Competence

For the last and final blog post in my capstone class, I focused on the apprenticeship pattern of “Retreat into Competence” from chapter two of the book Apprenticeship Patterns by Dave Hoover and Adewale Oshineye. The section talked about perhaps how you are overwhelmed or beginning to realize how little you know, or perhaps you have taken on a new challenge and things are not working out so well. However, getting back into something you are good at is a nice way of regaining your composure. I completely agree with this statement, sometimes all we need a just a pullback to launch forward towards the goal. The quote provided at the beginning of the section is what stood out to me the most.

Apprenticeship Patterns Blog – Learn How you Fail

The quote beginning of the section is what stood out to me the most. It says, “Ingenuity is often misunderstood. It is not a matter of superior intelligence but of character. It demands more than anything a willingness to recognize failure, to not paper over the cracks, and to change.” The section talked about how sooner or later you may face failures but the right thing to do is push forward at the boundaries and learn to overlook the mistakes you have faced. In our field, we face many failures but that is not holding us back to accomplish the goals we have set for ourselves. The author mainly talked about becoming conscious of the things that trip you but allow yourself the choice of working to fix the problems that are cutting the losses. One of the most important things to do when you face failure is to accept it and investm

Automation Testing

For the last and final blog for the CS 433 class, I want to focus on an interesting topic that is automation testing. Nowadays, most companies have implemented automated testing environments. It is the best way to increase effectiveness, test coverage, and the execution speed of software testing. Before I get started, what exactly is automation testing? Well, automation testing or Test automation is a software testing technique that performs using various software tools to execute a test case suite. The automation testing software can enter test data into the system and compare expected and actual results with the generated details test reports. There several benefits of using test automation, it is the best way to increase effectiveness and save money. Other factors include manual testing, which is time-consuming, Test automation does not require human intervention and can run automated tests unattended or even overnight, it is reliable in results, improve accuracy, better speed, and
