The first computer „Bug“ – History
But now you might ask – since when has there been a world testers day? Very good question. According to the almighty knowledge of the internet there are various sources how it happened. I am referring to the entry of „National Geographic“. I recommend you to read it, very interesting. And, do your fellow devs and testers know this already? 😉

Since 2012 I am a software tester and it is not an easy job. As a tester you should be able to think as a user, understand sometimes the software code and analyze the system behaviour, input parameters and be part of engineer in software development. But isn’t then every day a testers day? Kind of, but let’s stick to this 9th September and have a special day and feel proud to be a software tester.
So, have a wonderful day
