The international QA community celebrates it’s professional holiday. The Academy joins in congratulations.
September 9 is Tester’s Day. We congratulate QA engineers and everyone who is just planning to start their career in this field.
Do you know why this day is a global holiday for testers?
In 1947, a group of Harvard University scientists was testing a computing device. Suddenly the machine broke down. In an attempt to find the cause of this breakdown, scientists had to look into the case, where they found a moth. It turned out to be the primary source of problems.
This case ended up in the researchers’ technical diary: “First actual case of bug being found.”
Thus, one bug gave all QA specialists a professional holiday, testers got an excellent name for software code defects.
Happy Tester’s Day!
