In case you hadn’t noticed, the latest “buzz word” in the industry seems to be orchestration. The industry seems to think an orchestrator is an orchestra conductor.

Conducting and Orchestrating are different tasks carried out at different times using very different skills. Could they be done by the same person? Of course. An engine mechanic can drive a bus -- but he can't do both at the same time - they're very different jobs.

Orchestration is the study or practice of writing music for an orchestra or of adapting music composed for another medium for an orchestra. Also called “instrumentation”, orchestration is the assignment of different instruments to play the different parts of a musical work. Wikipedia

really like integration of testOps into the IDE left side bar. Great addition. Would be cool to also see individual tests run as well as executions. Cool feature
