A lesson in Test Patterns
I recently had a workshop at the SwissQ offices in Zurich about common test patterns and how I am looking for bugs. I showed a draft of this cartoon, and this was the only moment where they were really laughing out loud...so I thought it might be worth finalizing the cartoon and publish it.
I keep on telling people that I have more talent to break things than to
actually build things, since, whatever I touch breaks apart or results
in another nice story that I can convert into a new cartoon published
on my blog at www.zelger.org. I guess this is just a myth since I also
built things successfully that are used by a large group of people
worldwide. Maybe I just look at things a little bit differently. I am
inspired a lot by the speaches, articles and books of James Whittaker,
Dorothy Graham, Johnathan Kohl and many many more; I am hungry to learn
from them on a continuous basis and apply some of these techniques to
my daily work with pleasure.
profile picture at Linked-In is a P1800 Volvo and it stands for excellent quality and design;
inspired by a Long Islander’s revered red Volvo 1800, 1966 which is
known for having racked up more than 3 million miles (GIYBF).
on this blog is guaranteed from my daily and past experience working as a tester,
test automation engineer, test manager and developer.
ThanX to Juan Ortega, Ernst Mueller who have helpede developing my style of drawing and humour and thanX to the Software Testing Club who regularly published some of my cartoons.
