About a year ago, Danny Faught and I team-authored an article on Music to test by for the Association for Software Testing's magazine. Sadly, they had a change in editorship, well ... from having one to not having one. (It is a volunteer position)
So the article was never published. I just got an iTunes Gift card and find myself listening for music to test by.
So instead of listening to me pontificate, I am curious: Do you listen to music while you test or code? (Or do you have any music playing in the background while you pair or collaborate?)
I've found that movie soundtracks often work well because they are /designed/ to be on in the background. But I'm curious what you think ...
