But why? Neither article goes in depth. Maybe it’s because all news is good news, for a tester:
- The System Under Test (SUT) is crashing in QA, it doesn’t work, it’s a steaming pile of…YES! My testing was valuable! My life has meaning! My testing just saved users from this nightmare!
- The SUT is finally working. Awesome! It’s so nice being part of a development team that can deliver quality software. I can finally stop testing it and move on. Our users are going to love this.
See? Either way it’s good news.
Or maybe I just spin it that way to love my job more. So be it. If you think your testing job is stressful, you may want to make a few adjustments in how you work. Read my You’re a Tester, Relax post.
