Alan recently took some heat on Twitter for disliking Selenium – or more accurately, how it was being used. This episode is a discussion and expansion of why Alan and Brent both have strong feelings about the industry infatuation with UI testing.
We realize during the intro, that this is the first time we’ve recorded an AB Testing podcast when neither Alan nor Brent are in a dedicated testing / QA role. What does that mean for Modern Testing?
Turns out – not that much. Listen as we discuss.
Thanks to everyone who helped get us to this milestone episode. For episode 100, we share cast-time with all three of our listeners – who may or may not have been paid for their kind words.

Happy New Year everyone – amongst catching up, we spend most of the time discussing and debating a potential eighth Modern Testing Principle.
Happy Holidays to each and everyone of our three listeners. We review and reflect on 2018, and talk about some things we think may happen in 2019. Listen all the way to the end for a cliffhanger from Brent.
Thanks again for listening – in 2019, we will hit episode 100, our 5 year podacting anniversary, and the one year anniversary of the Modern Testing Principles. We look forward to more exciting discussions in 2019.
It’s the penultimate show of 2018, with a lot of (hopefully interesting) preamble on this one, but we spend a chunk of time reviewing the Context-Driven Testing Principles and how they relate to the Modern Testing Principles.
We eventually talk about a model Alan built to help a team discover where they need to grow in order to build a quality culture or move towards modern testing (they’re kind of the same thing).
Some rants and ramblings also included.
