Welcome to the Green Bar

Pull up a stool. From 2008 on, the Green Bar will be where I share thoughts and announcements about building, testing, and thinking about software. What’s a green bar? First, it’s this:

JUnit green bar

For ten years now, test-infected Java programmers have looked forward to that green bar to know that things are as they should be. My four-year-old son knows to bug me to make sure that the bar is green.

However, also think of the green bar as a place where we can meet, share a drink*, and talk about what we want to see happen in software, and the world. The sign on the back wall says “All that’s made is first named.” At the bar, we’ll name it, and then go out to make it.

P.S. I’ve blogged before. Those posts will stay up where they are, and new material will be added here.

* Actually, only talking about software will happen here. For the drinking, and talking about the world, you’ll have to drop me a mail.
