Many in Boston are dreading the logistical nightmare of an Olympics built around a 1600’s era, Pilgrim-founded roadmap that confuses even people that live in Boston. However, we here at uTest have Olympics Fever from the prospect of the 2024 Games being in such close proximity to our headquarters, which got us wondering: What would a testing-themed Olympics Games consist of?
Here are a few events we proposed could actually take place during the ‘Testing Olympics':
- Spear-throwing for bugs: Tester-athletes would be armed with spears, chucking them at targets of bug classics, including “Heartbleed”
- Usability Testing…With Trampolines: Testers of various strengths and sizes would put their jumping abilities to the test…along with their usability testing skills…by testing out the weight and build quality of new-to-market trampolines
- Greco-Roman Wrestling…With Developers: Testers would be able to take out their pent-up frustrations with developers by wrestling them Greco-Roman-style for Gold and glory
Which event would you want to see most at an Olympics comprised of tester-athletes?
