It’s vital to acknowledge from the outset that I am a reluctant programmer. I know how to program, but it’s not something I consider myself accomplished at doing. As a software tester, this is a common refrain that I have personally heard many times over the years. It’s so common that there is a stereotype that “people who can program, program. People who can’t program, test the code of programmers.” I disagree with that statement, but having compiled enough personal anecdotes over twenty years, I see why many people would have that view. I’m willing to bet that, if I were to sit down with a “non coding” software tester, I’d be able to show them that they write code all the time. Don't fear the code.
