There is no question on bugs that doesn’t get an answer like “open a bug in Jira and bla bla bla…”, every topic on performance have a Loadrunner or Jmeter here and there, no functional testing discussion seems to be worth its while if somebody doesn’t mention Selenium or QTP.
If you suggest somebody to talk and discuss the issues they have, somebody will jump in with the tool that will solve the issue straight away.
The CVs I review are festered with tools, some people with 3 year work experience claim they can use more tools I have ever used in almost 20 years.
For some strange reason, people believe that if you want to be agile you must use tools, when somebody clearly said “Individuals and interactions over processes and tools”.
Do not let the tools replace the conversations!
