What the fuck, does an EAT even do?!! Other than gaining a salary comparable to a Dev and just sitting in meeting day in day out.

How the fuck can someone work in tech without knowing even the basics of programming

    Ah the tester without a purpose finding defects in things that haven't been touched in months and are not part of the current workload.

    Who knew they had an official name.

    @C0D4 the thing is that the name contains automated, however they don't automate shit

    I am working on Java Stack they don't know Junit, Assertj, Cucumber or any kind of coding standard knowledge.

    So what the fuck dare they here for

    Automating their own brains to click another button?

    This requires minimal planning. Testers continuously make a decision on her next step of action. It completely depends upon the tester’s thought process.

    It sounds like brain dead manual testing to me.

    @Yggdrasil it takes a special kind of person to be able to handle that level of insanity.

    I couldn't imaging clicking a mouse for hours on end with no real outcome, ok I can game for hours but there's a sense of achievement to keep you going ๐Ÿ˜… this is on a whole other level.
