New open source projects released in github on how to pass software tests in a VW way.
https://github.com/auchenberg/volkswagen "If you want your software to be adopted by Americans, good tests scores from the CI server are very important. Volkswagen uses a defeat device to detect when it's being tested in a CI server and will automatically reduce errors to an acceptable level for the tests to pass. This will allow you to spend less time worrying about testing and more time enjoying the good life as a trustful software developer."

No, I didn't say anything like that and wouldn't have. One of my favorite hobbyhorses is the problematic state of higher ed in the US, which is mostly a byproduct of the privatization of educational finance. The implied alternative of that privatization is public funding -- but even that will depends, at some point, on private economic activity. I don't know enough about the VW / Lower Saxony model to say much about it, but it's probably better than the dominant model we have in the US. <...> # distributed via <nettime>: no commercial use without permission # <nettime> is a moderated mailing list for net criticism, # collaborative text filtering and cultural politics of the nets # more info: http://mx.kein.org/mailman/listinfo/nettime-l # archive: http://www.nettime.org contact: nett...@kein.org
