About Bugs and Monsters
Just because a bug doesn't get enough attention by developers and BAs and/or release decision makers, doesn't mean it sticks to that state 4-ever. Our testers and me, too were sometimes disappointed when we raised an issue weeks ago without anyone to unterstand its importance and impact; and then only to learn that few days before going live, people were desperatly searching for an ugly workaround although there was plenty of time - from our perspective - to fix the root cause if only it was understood early enough. Finding and "selling" a found bug are two different things and sometimes I find the latter more difficult especially when developers or other team members are busy with the next hot
release, since then there is little room for the big problems the next but one
release has to offer.
ThanX to the The Testing Planet magazine editors who were so kind to publish my cartoon in their issue 8
Here we are with a selection of my own cartoons. Continuous inspiration
is guaranteed from my daily and past experience working as a tester,
test automation engineer, test manager and developer. ThanX to Juan
Ortega my good old friend from my former-former-former workplace. His
ideas have helped a lot to improve my cartoons and he is still watching
me. ThanX also applies to Ernst Mueller who has some great talent of
turning weird scenarios into great sound bites that I take and turn into
my cartoons. ThanX also to the Software Testing Club and STQA Magazine
who regularly publish my cartoons in their magazines.
