These are the made up stories of a team working in an Agile environment. Their daily struggles and successes are presented in a comic/parody/satirical way. Click on the image to see it in full size.

The team members are:

  • Little, the main character. The team’s tester.
  • Coffee, the team’s Java developer.
  • Mr. Fancy, the team’s UI developer.
  • Senor, the Senior Developer of the team.
  • Kitty, the Scrum Master.
  • Glasses, the Business Analyst.
  • And the manager.


  • This is a work of fiction. Names, characters, businesses, places, events, situations presented are either the products of the author’s imagination or used in a fictitious manner. Any resemblance to actual persons or events is purely coincidental.

  • The sole purpose of this comic strip is to be humorous.

  • The drawings are made by hand on paper, by means of pencils and fine liners, except for the outline, by the author. Hence their imperfection.

One thought on “The Little Tester #88

  1. This reminds me of the time that I joined a new company. For background: I was 30 years a civil servant, in collar-and-tie environments, either public-facing or in the immediate support team for Very Senior People. So business attire is my default setting for workplace situations, even in IT.

    Cut to about three months into the new job. My colleagues in the IT team are used to me, but the rest of the company mainly haven’t met me. We are having a charity dress-down day, but I don’t do that, especially as I’m off out straight from work and am especially well suited and booted.

    A colleague comes round doing the collection for the dress-down day. I don’t want to appear churlish and it’s for a good cause, so I put my hand in my pocket and give him the same money as everyone else. He looks surprised. “You do know this is for the dress-down day?” he asked.

    I drew myself up to my full height, and announced to the office, “I AM dressed down.”
