“Every Tester in Testville liked testing a lot.
But the Grinch, who sat north of Development – did not.
The Grinch was a Tester and he hated the whole damn lot!
Now, please don’t ask why; no one quite knows the reason.
It could be, perhaps, that his shoes were too tight.
But I think that the most likely reason of all,
May have been that he sat alone near the wall,
Testing all night!
He looked such a fright!
Throwing quality away as the changes came again…….”
An extract from “A Tester’s Winter Tale, How the Grinch stole scripting.”
A little festive fun coupled with a serious thread that will resonate with all those involved in application quality management and software testing.
