Every software testing company occasionally experiences bug-free periods. During such periods, end users do not find more or less critical bugs in the production version of a product.

This means that test strategy was efficient and the product code was well-written. This also means that QA team did an excellent job by effectively conducting functional testing, unit testing, security testing, load testing, performance testing, etc. It may be surprising, but sometimes software testers may feel uncomfortable and lose their self-esteem during bug-free periods.

How to Maintain Self-Confidence When There Are No Bugs to Report?

  • An expert in software testing may initiate the launch of online counter indicating a number of days that  product works without bugs in production. This counter can be placed on the corporate website.
  • A great idea is to present information on the undertaken testing activities in a form of test reports. This allows testers to effectively analyze these activities and share the conclusions with others.
  • If a tester and developer worked together from the very beginning of the testing process, and this led to the release of a bug-free product, they should congratulate each other and discuss the possibility of further cooperation.
  • Testers can try to find bugs in the features that were already tested by their teammates. If some of them find any new bugs, they’ll create bug reports. If not, they’ll be sure that nothing was missed.

If end users don’t detect any bugs in a product, it’s a success, and the whole team should be proud of it.
