Happy Tester's Day! Be proud of being Tester!...and don't forget to celebrate!
What importance does September 9 have to people in IT? Well, we just wouldn’t be using a "bug" or "debugging" terms without this date.
If you haven't heard about Tester's day then read this! It is 70 years since the first bug was found.
According to the Computer History Museum, on September 9, 1945 when the scientists were testing the computer Mark II Aiken Relay Calculator, they found a real small moth between the contacts of the electromechanical relay and one of them pronounced the word bug. The scientists had to make a report on the work done where the term debugging appeared for the first time.
Software testing is not an easy job. The tester should be able to think as a user, analyze the system behavior, input parameters and obtained results as an engineer who takes part in software development.
Sure, every day is Tester's Day, but it would be good to have a special day that can make testers around the world share and collaborate and feel proud to be one.
We’d like to congratulate all people who test, who fights with various bugs and errors, knows where are the bugs from and wish them all the best!
So here you have it, folks. It deserves celebration, commemoration and recognition just like other professions have. How will you celebrate Tester’s Day? With a cake? By finding a bug in Grace Hoppers honor? Do not hesitate to share it in the comments below. In the meantime, let’s give your colleague a high-five and wish them a Happy Tester’s Day.
