Retro of the Week #23 myth of easy money in IT

This week was surreal. Monday Coming to work I learned we are flying to Dublin. The city I left barely two months ago.
So this week I was pondering myth of easy money in IT.
And I was playing with TDD.

mind map for week 23

The Question of the week:  Is myth of easy money in it True?

This week three things happened. WiT asked me to write the short article with answers for few questions connected to Tech Leaders program. One of them was a question if people should join It.
I have met two people that want to start their carrier in it.
One was quite successful business women that are not satisfied with her job. She looks for something new. But she is a little afraid of a pay cut.
The second one is the well more strange case. He doesn’t know English, and well I think he never finished high school. Also, He has problems with finding a job and keeping it. So  He wants to go to do some “IT technician” course and start working as Sysadmin.
He was baited by stories of guys that have no degree and are earning more than masters of science.

And I am sitting here and thinking that we have our gold rush.
I think there is still a lot of jobs here, but I am not sure if it is as easy to get and as easy work as some may think.

The Article of the week:

Test Driven Testing – to be honest, I am little pissed off.
Cause I have concept TDTD – Test Driven Test Development, this is an idea I am finetuning since 2014 I have even mention it in few my presentations.
His concept is similar. But still, I strongly Encourage you to read his article.

The Experiment of the week:

I was playing a little with TDD since I am preparing the workshop
and I am always getting surprised how Hard it is.
The discipline you need to keep writing the test before writing code.
And also you need to be able to plan ahead.

And How did your week go?

Did you read something interesting? Or there are questions connected to testing that are on your mind?
