Monkey See, Monkey Do Development

"Humans and higher primates share approximately 97% of their DNA in common. Recent research in primate programming suggests computing is a task that most higher primates can easily perform.

"Great apes (hominids) do not have tails, while monkeys do. Research indicates that great apes are very productive in the areas of software maintenance and report writing, while most monkeys will struggle. Monkeys however are great at software testing. So the rule of thumb is, if you don’t have a tail, you can probably program."

"Baboons handle software testing at PPI. Baboons work in colonies and can get very rowdy at work when things are going well."

Get a load of Cathleen. What beauty, and value priced too!
