Weekend Testing Session 6 - TuxPaint

How many times have you enjoyed a software while testing it?

One such occasion was in the Bangalore Weekend Testers Session held on Saturday, the 5th of September 2009 3pm - 5pm IST.

Twelve testers agreed to test TuxPaint, a free, award-winning drawing program for children ages 3 to 12. It combines an easy-to-use interface, fun sound effects, and an encouraging cartoon mascot who guides children as they use the program.

WOW!!! The kid in every tester came out and literally played with the software such that 60 bugs surfaced which were carefully noted down by the tester at work.

Amazing to know if you enjoy doing something, you can excel at it too!!!

Please do treat yourself with this software available at
If you want to know the issues beforehand, check out the list of bugs found by us here.

Thanks to Bill Kendrick who permitted us to test and publish the report.

I'm sorry if you missed this week's session too but you have a chance next week.
