    The Day of Friendship between Testers & Developers

    Hi, everyone!
    Today I have got to know that November, 23 is "The Day of Friendship between Testers & Developers".
    It is a remarkable holiday I believe :-)!

    Here in Omsk, we was glad to celebrate it today. We performed a flashmob when testers gave it's compliments to developers )).

    What are about you, guys? How did you celebrate this day?

    I didn't even know that this was a real thing. Can someone post a link here for this thing so I can forward it around? I think that we should definitely embrace this holiday if it is for real and make it last.

    Why embrace it as a holiday and just get to know the developers you work with? A much better idea in my opinion

    Well I think that holidays are more important to recognize, especially if we can bring this to a point of a day off or free beer on the company for "Team Building".

    In my company, the developers and testers are friends every day.

    We celebrated today by having the day off. (In the US, many companies have Thanksgiving and the day after Thanksgiving off)

    MAN! You guys are so lucky. I wish I was American today. Actually I was I was American any day there is a holiday. Actually, what ever nationality there is in the world where there is a holiday, I wish I was that nationality.

    I am one of the un-lucky ones that only got yesterday off from work. My company is tied to the US Stick market, so if they are running, we are working.

    Many, that's sucky. I thought I had it bad, you're American and didn't even get it off.

    Re: The Day of Friendship between Testers & Develo

    I was able to take yesterday off - as that was a holiday, but today - no.

    Not really bothersome, it is very quiet here today (a lot did take a vacation day, but with me being new and having a small vacation bank I chose not to). The other compensations from the company make the minor "injustice" of not having the standard two days for Thanksgiving a little easier to overlook.

    Same will happen at Christmas - I have Christmas day, but not Boxing day. Although the wife is prodding me to take that one off - might have to use one day for that [img]/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

    Re: The Day of Friendship between Testers & Develo

    Well if they make it worth while being there then I'll work an "injust" day here and there also. We definitely get Boxing Day here, plus I just booked the 27th and 28th, so it's like a week and a half vacation for the price of two days! SWEET!
