Week 5: Testing Day

Week 5! Here we are. This week contained a special day for our company that happens before a new release of our software. Testing day! Testing day is where we test (obviously) different system functions to see if they work or not.

This was my first testing day since joining the company. I wasn’t entirely sure what to expect. I also was still within my 10-day recovery period for Covid so I had to wear a mask. So here’s how the day went. I got there at 8 am and was ready to get started. We did a quick rundown of what we were going to do. Basically, we needed to go into the system and test if that function was working. If it wasn’t we created a ticket that would be sent to our engineers to fix. 

So the day began. There was so much to test. Then we got Chipotle for everyone which was really good and got my energy up to continue testing. It was really hard to wear my mask because I was still recovering and also because it was difficult to breathe. I made it through the day and was really glad I came. 

Apparently, that was a very quick testing day. We got through things quickly. One of the funny things about testing day was that the engineers took over support from us. We did a bit of a switcheroo where we kind of did their job and they did ours.

The rest of the week was great. I felt much better as the week went on. It was really nice to get back into the groove of things after having Covid. This week’s post will be very short but still wanted to document it!

Stay bookish my friends,
