Last week I gave a talk at Selenium Conference in Boston called ‘How to solve intermittent issues, a.k.a. “Random Failures”‘. The video was recorded and you can watch it here:
There were some really great talks at the conference and you should definitely check them out at the Selenium conference Youtube channel!
I had a mention years back who wouldn’t allow us to say “Random” when talking about failures, stressing the point that computers were deterministic.
I occasionally get pedantic about the use of the word “random” with regards to these failures too, for the same reason.
