APPLE WATCH – TIME FOR A NEW GUEST

Friday night at a Testology party. There were drinks of considerable strangeness and drinks all-too familiar, indefinable types of food being lined up for quick consumption… cheeses, meats, chicken skewers, churros with melted chocolate, food with no names, food with unpronounceable names, food, food, and food, more drinks, laughter, conversation about all things – while [...]

FUNCTIONAL TESTING – THE ART OF A DESTRUCTIVE TESTER

Testology went to San Francisco!

We’re back! Well, actually we got back a week ago... That’s the only problem with meeting so many people in just a week at GDC, follow-up mails when you get back always take way longer than expected.

PG Connects London

We’ve been able to track down some wonderful examples of the past reemerging online many years later. The content is super interesting and worth a read. The hair is voluminous. Check [...]

DESTINY RAIDS – HOW WE DID…

So, in our last blog we referenced the second coming of the Testology games night. Within this piece of web literature, we referenced the nervousness emanating from the prospective Destiny raid that was planned. The raid was attempted twice. The raid was successfully completed twice! And in truly boastful fashion, the 6 gentlemen clicked and [...]
