My Favorite Things


With apologies to Rodgers and Hammerstein, and Julie Andrews:

BVT blockers and feature team meetings,
Checking in code and build folder cleanings,
Making my dev cry with hardly a strain:
These are a few of my favorite things.

Installing new builds and making them crumple,
Devs sleeping in offices their clothing all rumpled,
Watching apps founder like new born younglings:
These are a few of my favorite things.

When my app croaks, when crashes it brings,
When I'm in the zone,
I run through each of my favorite things
And lo - how the bug count has grown!

Weird happenstances that never should happen,
Laughing as my dev's face it becomes all ashen,
They sit and mourn while I do handsprings:
These are a few of my favorite things!

When my app croaks, when crashes it brings,
When I'm in the zone,
I run through each of my favorite things
And lo - how the bug count has grown!

I run through each of my favorite things
And lo - how the bug count has grown!
