Why do we test software? Not in order to make tests pass. We test software so as to find bugs, i.e. errors in code, whether those errors are in third party libraries and frameworks or in code developed by us.

Why on earth would I want to make these guys do Zumba?
People working in our field of business often have a difficult task in explaining what it is that they do for living. “I work as a service designer in a company, that provides digital services” isn’t quite as clear as “I work as a fireman” - and no wonder!
