And few would ever argue with this statement.

But the very best software testers are also artists.

They have a “creativity” itch that they absolutely must scratch. And that deep itch often manifests in unusual ways, which is why these testers tend […]

What Do Testers Do When There’s Nothing to Test?

The “off-season” isn’t something you normally hear about in software development and testing. Beach towns, professional sports, and academia all have natural breaks built into their schedules. But testers and developers work all year-round.

At the macro level, there is no “off-season” for our industry.

When Developers Don’t Care about the Software Defects We Find

In theory, we’re all supposed to be on the same page. In the quest to deliver stable builds that excite end-users:

Software testers are in charge of finding and reporting bugs.
Software developers are responsible for fixing those bugs.

It all sounds pretty straightforward.

But the reality is often very different.

There are times when developers don’t devote as […]

Can Artificial Super Intelligence Test Software Better Than Humans Can?

We’ve discussed the growth of artificial intelligence (AI) extensively in the past, with posts about:

Amazing multi-world games like No Man’s Sky.
Self-creating websites through platforms like

Technological breakthroughs like these potentially put software testers and developers at risk. We could become irrelevant in a world where machines can do all the heavy lifting.

What If Every Software Tester Went on Strike?

The Most Annoying Defect for Software Developers to Fix

At Testuff, we talk a lot about finding defects. But what about fixing those bugs after you’ve found them?

If you regularly follow this blog, you already know how we feel about this topic:

“Fixing” defects is the developer’s job (exclusively).
“Finding” bugs is the tester’s job (exclusively).

And it’s best if these 2 hemispheres are kept separate.

But does […]
