Considering job title change to “Technical Voorlooper”

Lately I’ve been using a little ruby script (made by fellow Campaign Monitor tester James Martin) to generate random strings of words for test data. Yesterday it generated something like “conical oribi voorlooper”.


“Voorlooper means in the simplest sense a scout or  forerunner – someone who is ahead of the pack. It also means someone who  is searching for answers, ie. testing new grounds, something also like a  scout in an adventurer’s party. It also has a darker meaning of one who  brings news of the future, of foreboding or a harbinger.”

Sounds a bit like a tester to me!
