Yesterday marked Grace Hopper's 107th birthday. She was one of the first computer programmers and is famous for spotting the first ever bug (a moth to be precise). My question is, did the bug come first which then lead to testers doing testing or was it other way round? I think testers came first otherwise the bug would have never been 'raised'. You need someone (i.e. a tester) to identify an issue or a problem which can then be confirmed as a bug (or something else like a new feature!).
I have two NEWS items:
1st) I will be leading a workshop in May 2014 at Test Bash 3 about being creative as a tester and visualising the testing which can help with test planning and design as well as reporting. More details here: http://www.ministryoftesting.com/training-events/be-creative-a-visual-testing-workshop/
2nd) The 1st draft of the Cartoon Tester book is nearly ready. You can follow the progress here: https://leanpub.com/thecartoontester
3rd) This isn't news, but don't forget to follow The Cartoon Tester Facebook page :) https://www.facebook.com/cartoontester
