Another unit conversion app?

I’ve always had a challenge in understanding the meaning of data transfer rates I hear whenever I’m asking about an ISP package. What does 15Mbps even mean? I think better in terms of how many megabytes of data I can download per second, so I’ve always had to use an online converter to convert the Mbps to MB/s. I’ve done it this way until I thought to myself, why don’t I just build my own app to do this for me?

I did it, coded the python app and it works! I also went on to add distance and weight conversions.

Fleeting thoughts of a wanna-be software tester.

I love quality. I love things that work well, I expect perfection from people, especially if they are providing a service to me. I do not understand when someone cannot do their job. I am a critical and sometimes persimisstic person. I’ve always thought these were my vices, but after reading a certain book by James Bach, I’m starting to reconsider. Apparently these are just the qualities that are needed to be successful in software testing.

I love code, I like the rush I get when I debug (my simple) programs and manage to get them to work.This has got me to really consider a career in Software Testing or Quality Assurance.
