Discussion on: How long does it take for your test suite to run?

Oh this is totally my point. I’ve worked at a few places where they refuse to increase the infrastructure for testing “cause it’s too expensive” but there devs would spend 2 or 3 hours a day waiting for tests to run. It’s just a wild culture and poor understanding by management and poor ownership by the dev team.

I work in a brilliant place where they understand the cost of having people sat round waiting for half a day.

We will get to a point where the runners for the pipeline are in our infrastructure, and if they are slow we can throw more resource at them. Or each developer can have their own dedicated runner. It won't cost a lot, and free up a lot of time.

All stuff for next year!
