Her first bug report

November 7, 2008

I remember the first time my daughter said “dada”, which was also her first word (though I think my wife disagrees).

And there’s another important milestone for Jenna – her first bug report 🙂

She came up to my office, complaining about a problem on the Bella Sara web site. At the time I was nostril-deep in Jira issue hell, so I told her I would be happy to look at it, just as soon as she filed a bug report. After 25 years I’ve perfected many techniques for blowing off pesky users.

A few minutes later she tapped me on the shoulder and handed over her first bug report:

Jenna's first bug report

Nice, step-by-step instructions with details required to reproduce it. I think there’s a potential career in QA.
