F5 - The Wonder Key
I’ve had the pleasure of working on a part of our website that my boss was acceptance testing
We had a session today at work where my boss was acceptance testing part of our website while I was working on it. Whenever I introduced a bug or a premature save caused syntax error he would notice it within a minute. At the point he noticed the error I would usually already have seen and corrected it, so our conversations for half the day went like
- “Jakob, there’s an error!”
- “Yeah, press F5”
- “It’s gone!”
- “I know”
I present to you F5 – The wonder key that enables bosses to fix every single bug with a single keypress.
