It's been quite a week. There have been a lot of meetings, a lot of emails, a lot of reporting. This afternoon, I get to test again. I feel a lot better when I can keep my hand in. When I keep testing, I can:
help my team get through crunch periods
know what I'm talking about in detail when I get asked about the software
keep my skills fresh
Boy I'd hate to give that up. No matter how manager-y you are, don't forget to keep testing!
