Google Releases 'Testing on the Toilet'
Yes, the title of this post means exactly what it implies. Some crazy folks at Google had the
not so marvelous idea of displaying tips for its developers in each of the company's 500 bathrooms. The main goal of this program, which apparently has been already running for several months at Google, is to teach employees about the virtues of well-tested code, even while they're sitting on the throne.
We're unveiling the public release of "Testing on the Toilet": one of Google's little secrets that has helped us to inspire our developers to write well-tested code. We write flyers about everything from dependency injection to code coverage, and then regularly plaster the bathrooms all over Google with each episode, almost 500 stalls worldwide.
Am I the only one here that thinks that this project is a little disturbing? What are your thoughts on this?
