Dilbert Tackles Software QA!


Dilbert Tackles Software QA!

What does it mean when test scripts show up in a Sunday comic???
This Dilbert comic appeared nationally in October 2018:

Dilbert has covered many diverse topics over the decades of comics. But test scripts???
Of course, the comic is meant to be funny. But the punch line is “I just put you on the losing team.”

How should we interpret that? The LOSING team? Who wants to be on a losing team?
Well my view is he is surmising that QA is the hardest job in IT.
If you don’t find any bugs, you didn’t try hard enough.
AND if you did find bugs, dev is unhappy.
And whether you found them or not you took too long to do so.
So…winning in software QA has been hard. VERY hard. For decades.
We have all felt this. Seems like it’s impossible to win.

That’s where Appvance AI can change any QA team to a winning team. And everyone wants to be on the winning team!
Let the AI write your tests and find the bugs.
Don’t let Dilbert have the last word. If your team is serious about moving 100X faster, with greater coverage, Appvance AI can help today.
