Hope this is not too OT, but I know I will get a good answer here...
I will be soon* helping one of my clients write a job spec for an
agile software developer, to work on a Ruby web app using RSpec. I'd
just like to know something from experienced BDDers - what in a job
spec would attract your attention? There's obviously nothing I can do
about pay, working conditions etc (although both are pretty good, I
have to say - I'd certainly like the job if I didn't want to work for
myself), so it's more the technical appeal of the job.
I'm guessing most people would be put off by, for example:
Programmer wanted to write web site. Must have 3 years' experience in
Rails, SQL Server and CVS. We are agile so you must deliver 3 pages
of the project spec every iteration. We do pair programming, but if
you need a machine of your own, we have some spare Windows 95 boxes in
But what things make a job appealing? What technologies, skills,
practices and methodologies make for a good BDD role?
* Tomorrow actually, I guess I had the inspiration to ask on this list
a bit late
