Unprepared Geeks is SmartBear’s biweekly video-podcast about all things tech and quality. Tag along as the people behind soapUI and loadUI get together and discuss recent events, gadgets, and hot topics.
Today Henrik Johansson, Erik Yverling, Niclas Reimertz, and Ulrika Park discuss:
00:29 – AdTrap is a Kickstarter that wants to give you a “free Internet for all your devices”
AdTrap is a physical AdBlocker that you hook up to your router, removing any and all ads you see on the Internet. The team discusses how the growth of AdBlocker affects the quality of services dependent on ads for revenue. Niclas gives his honest and blunt opinion of what he really thinks of people promoting and developing AdBlockers.
5:30 – Are testing and development art?
We often hear people throw around the expression that “testing/development is an art.” Is it? What qualifies as an art and what qualifies as a craft? Do we even want testing and development to be considered an “art”?
14:35– Marry, Boink, Kill
The team throws their verdict on a few of the latest events, gadgets, and topics and decide which ones, if forced, they would marry, boink, and kill.
