The meaning of "Ministry" in "Ministry of testing"?

What is the meaning of “Ministry” in “Ministry of testing”?

Is this about religious/proselyting activity or administrative organization?

I think it’s a cultural reference, a tribute to Monthy Python - in one of the episodes there is something called the Ministry of Silly Walks, so I guess it maybe a parody at the government’s expense. I could be wrong and just seeing what I want to see since I’m no fan of governments in general. :sweat_smile:

Yup, no deep meaning to it. Not religious. Not government associated. It’s more about a fun play on words.

There’s a few random ‘Ministries’ out there in various niches that are fun to stumble across.

Saying that, it doesn’t mean we aren’t serious about serving ‘software testers’, we very much are. We just like to be creative/playful along the way.

I totally missed this “creative/playful” tone.

I always thought it was ministry of sound ‘pun’ as the logo looks similar :man_shrugging:
