My habits from my job…

After being QA, I got some habits in my normal life… 🙂

– Alway, don’t believe anything until I see and test it.: Well, it may not be from my job. but I got more tendency not to believe anything at the beginning.

– Try to get repro steps even with very dangerous cases…: One time, I got problem with my car on freeway. I was driving on freeway, and my car started not to accelerate and losing power and I could see an warning light on my console. after turning off and on engine again, it did disappear, but I tried to repro it. and I got the repro steps and finally I could convince my service guy to fix it. (it was actually recall class issue which was recalled about a 10 month later.)

– Want to know how it is changed.: Always, my first question to my dev side co-worker after they fix bugs is how you fix it? and now even in my normal life, I want to know what the difference is between before and after for any type of changes.

– Find bugs in many products which I use: With any of my toys, I always try to find out any issue. and try to break it via logical defects. and I could see many of interesting results from them. my wife doesn’t like that because I almost broke some kitchen wares. 🙂

I may get more habbits from my job. anyway, it is interesting to see how job can impact on people. 🙂

    You could save somebody lifes if was able to send repro steps to your car company in addition to service guy.

    This kind of motivation make people happy to report bugs to Microsoft. Instead of fixing them localy – they change how software work for entire World ;o)
