Geez Dilbert. Must we perpetuate the stereotype that QA engineers (or testers) are intellectually inferior to developers.
Here’s the strip for 10/28/11:
While I don’t doubt that there are QA jobs that require little brainpower, many folks seem quick to generalize and lump *all* QA jobs into this bucket. I even get a whiff of this when interviewing external candidates for testing positions at Microsoft.
Candidate asks - “How much time will I spend coding?”
I translate this into - “How little time will I have to spend doing inferior QA type activities?”
It makes me ill.
Marketing folks, I’ll let you defend yourselves.
