Software Quality Assurance

Klingon Software Quality Assurance

The top 12 things likely to be overheard if you had Klingon programmers working for you:


  • Specifications are for the weak and timid!!
  • This machine is a piece of GAGH! I need dual Pentium processors if I am to do battle with this code.
  • You cannot really apprecaite Dilbert unless you've read it in the original Klingon.
  • Indentation?! I will show you how to indent when I indent your skull!
  • What is this talk of 'release'? Klingons do not make software 'releases'. Our software escapes, leaving a bloody trail of designers and quality assurance people in its wake!
  • Klingon function calls do not have "parameters" - they have "arguments"- and they ALWAYS WIN THEM.
  • Debugging? Klingons do not debug. Our software does not coddle the weak.
  • I have challenged the entire Quality Assurance team to a Bat-Leh contest! They will not concern us again.
  • A TRUE Klingon warrior does not comment his code.
  • By filing this bug report you have challenged the honor of my family. Prepare to die!
  • You question the worthiness of my code? I should kill you where you stand!
  • Our users will know fear and cower before our software! Ship it! Ship it and let them flee like the dogs they are!

Done

Sunday : 09 Nov '08 - 16:51 | damen default Only one comment | Wikipedia

We've finished moving all our stuff into the new appartment and also got a lot already packed out and into their places..

Many thanks to all the people that helped us, with their help we managed to have everything in the truck before 11h00 and everything in the new appartment before 12h15. Unglaublich!!

Photos will follow soon, but as we do not have telephone or internet currently that is not so easy.
