The humans are dead, part 2

Continuing where the previous introductory post left off, we continue to discuss the epic battle between the ruthless testing automation machines and the brave manual testing of the human QA army.

The humans are dead

One of the songs by New Zealand’s Flight of the Chonchords, which is by the way an amazing show that music and Borat fans must watch, is about how in the distant future, the year 2000, the humans are dead. Robots used poisonous gasses to poison our a$$es. Robotic beings rule the world and the […]

20. “That’s weird…”
19. “It’s never done that before.”
18. “It worked yesterday.”

15. “What did you type in wrong to get it to crash?”
14. “There is something funky […]

The Zen of Testing

As I was testing away our brand new shiny Testuff 0.9, I was wondering about the everlasting question in our profession, what makes a good tester? What qualities are needed for the acest QA of them all? Maybe arrogantly, what is it that makes me a good tester?

I don’t think this answer can be summed […]
