Happy tester's day!

    According to legend, September 9, 1945, scientists at Harvard University, who tested the Mark II Aiken Relay Calculator computer, found a moth stuck between the contacts of an electromechanical relay and Grace Hopper uttered the term. The extracted insect was pasted into the technical diary, with the accompanying inscription: “First actual case of bug being found” (Eng. “The first case in practice when a bug was discovered”). This funny fact laid the foundation for the use of the word “bug” in the meaning of “error”.

    It is with this fact that Wikipedia motivates the fact that today is an unofficial holiday for testers.

    In general, happy holiday, colleagues!
