Why is Testing Low Status? [R03]

Track Session with Bolette Stubbe Teglbjærg, House of Test AB (DK)

In many software development projects it’s common to hear jokes such as “testers are programmers who can’t code” or “testers are failed programmers”. Sometimes people refer to testers as “just testers”. It almost seems like testers have a different status, a lower social status than a typical developer. Is this true? And if true – why is it like this?

With a short presentation of my personal and professional experience in software testing I invite you to discuss this tabooed topic.

I am looking forward to see you all!

 

CopenhagenContext_2015_Person_Speaker_Profile_Bolette_Stubbe_TeglbjaergdkBolette is a wonderful tester, attacking testing problems with courage, wits and a profound knowledge about testing from both practical experience and a strong theoretical basis. She is very likeable and easily becomes a highly valued part of any team she engages with, probably because she is truly caring for her fellow human beings and put a lot of importance into being present, curious and serious – spicing up with her deeply rooted humour and contagious laughter. She simply makes up good company and spread calmness and fun.
She is an advocate for Context-Driven Testing and understand how to implement it in all environments.
Thinking is important for Bolette, and she is always ready to challenge arguments that are just too shallow or unsupported. Even doing so with grace, she leverages the discussions and outcomes by raising the bar of professionalism.
Testing is about getting the right information to the right people at the right time, and by this creed she lives and works.
