    Re: Why we like software testing ?

    1. I love new technology, I like the challenge it provides, I like being an integral part of a software release.

    2. Opportunity, money, and technology (not necessarily in that order).

    Well I started my career with small business,then moved on to do marketing job ,then Site Engineer and now Performance consultant.
    Only reason I moved into Testing was Money.
    Money offered in QA atleast here in India was more compare to other fields.

    Re: Why we like software testing ?

    What I like from my testing jobs is the ability to work with system from end to end, instead of focusing on a "little aspect of it" like most developers. It is also an ideal place to interact with customers, developers, PMs, and all other functions of the Software Development Ecosystem...

    I think the job choose me, I was an Industrial Engineer Undergrad and someone offered me a job as a tester in a small start-up, 4 months after that I was leading the team, one year latter managing the QA. That was more than 10 years ago and I keep enjoying almost every day of my job.

    1. Because it is fun, interesting and there is always lots to learn.

    Ok.. i have two questions
    1. Why do you like software testing?

    Why do you have to like what you do ?
    Why do you think everyone who does testing likes it

    2. Why you chose this job?

    Testing is a necessity like going to the toilet, someone has to do it and there is good money in it

    Your questions aside, sure there may be people who get excited about testing, but most testing involves methodically analysing detail and a lot of repetition. Can't talk for everyone, but its like presuming an accountant likes auditing.

    A similar analogy is that I need to mow my lawn, I am quite good at it, but do I enjoy it ? I could pay some one $50 every two weeks to do it, but I like the $50 more than I hate mowing the lawn.

    Another comment is that sure there are some out there who truly enjoy what they do, but having that as an expectation for everyone (as you seem to) is just nuts !

    I blogged the answer to this 18 months ago. I don't think my views have changed.
