What If you Fall in Love with a Hammer?


I have a colleague. He is called the Doctor, and for a good reason. When it comes to test automation, the man has solved automation challenges that have been said to be impossible. And with amazing skill and accuracy.

The Doctor is regularly asked in first meetings as to what tool he uses or recommends? The man’s answer is pure diamond, that I feel a shortness of breath every time I think about it.

While you can drive a screw into the wall with a hammer, first you need to understand what you want to attach and why?

I know too many experts who start their assignments tool first. A job started from the hardware store wastes time in addition to money, and makes it more likely to end up with the wrong results.

Fall in love with the hammer and you will see only nails around.
