SolbegSoft Celebrated QA and Programmer Days

September 24, 2019
    SolbegSoft knows a thing or two about holding social events inside our office and building amazing atmosphere. We decided to highlight the history of QA and Programmer days, so let’s dive into some facts and check on how we celebrated these holidays, while having so much fun!

QA Day

Background history

This holiday has its own legend. It’s been 74 years since the first bug had been found. According to the history, the scientists were testing the computer Mark II Aiken Relay Calculator on the 9th of September in 1945, found a real small moth between the contacts of the electromechanical relay, and one of the scientists pronounced the word ‘bug’.

The scientists had to make a report on the work done, where the term ‘debugging’ appeared for the first time. Now debugging is the process of finding and eliminating bugs, which lead to a system’s incorrect performance or failures.

Software Testing is not an easy job. Testers need to validate the system under various angles of the application and in the users’ eyes.

Programmer’s Day

Background history

International Programmers’ Day was launched in 2007 to honor programmers. The day is celebrated in many countries on the 256th day of the year, which is usually September 13, or September 12 in leap years.

Many people observe International Programmers’ Day on the 256th day of the year because “256” (28) is the number of distinct values that can be represented with an 8-bit byte, and 256 is the highest power of 2 that is less than 365, the number of days in a year.

These two holidays are no ordinary days for the IT community. These are the days when we celebrated our precious QA Engineers and Programmers around the world and appreciated their work and contribution.
