Had a QA department once that would stop testing a release as soon as they found 1 bug. The rationale was, further testing was a waste because that build isn't going out.
That feeling when you see the QA shaking his head with disapproval when he checks out your feature. *hello darkness my old friend*
It's worse than that. They don't kill it - they tell you to.
It's like being told to take your puppy out to the river and drown it.
Last place I worked, the development team looked at me like I was the grim reaper. They'd see me coming and whisper, "Please don't be coming for me."
When I worked on Adobe Livemotion 2, I found that if you minimized the application, then adjusted your screen resolution, when you maximized the application, all the palettes were missing. I reported it, only to have the palette developer say during a triage, "Nobody's going to do this." I told him, "I did this. And if I did this, I guarantee you someone else will." I wasn't even *trying* to find any issues, I just needed to change my screen resolution and happened upon it. The best part is, once you find some weird fluke like that, you know you've opened Pandora's Box and there's a dozen other bugs just like it waiting to be discovered. That same developer loved to say, "It's not a bug, it's a feature." Hyuck. I really hated that joke.
Our job isn't just to verify that the program works the way it should when used in the way you're supposed to... it's also to verify that the program works the way it should when you use it in ways you're not supposed to.
QA gets a bad rap. If shit fails on release then it's "why do we have this department". If they halt a release because of bugs or whatever "they are holding us up". They can't win
It's the I need to walk on egg shells team
That was the butterfly that causes the tornado in prod.
Relatable. Except my QA is the CEO and the feature requester is the CEO.
Mans too busy to remember his own requests
This portrays QA folks as mean, uncaring bug squashing machines, but personally I LOVE my QA team at all my jobs. They're awesome and they help me keep my job by ensuring that I'm not shipping something to the customer that would piss them off and make them look for a new development company.
He said found a bug because he caught the butterfly and a butterfly is a bug.
That sinking feeling you get in your stomach when the email comes though because a QA engineer moved your JIRA ticket to "Testing rejected" for the 3rd time that week.
Test your shit, code monkey.
Guys, the butterfly isn’t the bug. The fact that it can be broken by a user with a simple loosely timed hand clap is the bug. Make it stronger next time.
