Since the dawn of time, humans have always been toolmakers. When we are faced with a problem, trivial or repeatable issue, we tend to seek out a tool that helps us overcome that pesky dilemma. If you think about it, many of the issues we face in software development aren’t very different and for us here at Bitbar, we like the fact that we create tools for humans to solve problems and make automated testing easier (and trivial).
A solid example of the man and tool paradigm is Testdroid Recorder. A trivial task and not necessarily so difficult to do by handwriting gets done automatically with Testdroid Recorder. The most significant difference is that handwriting that test case could easily take days, even weeks. But with Testdroid Recorder, the very same functionality gets recorded, tested and played back in minutes. This tool really does all the heavy lifting for you instantly with no need to reinvent the ancient and still used today, pulley!
