Smoke Test

My wife asked me the other day why is it called a “smoke test”. I honestly didn’t know. Here’s what Jargon has to say about it:

  1. A rudimentary form of testing applied to electronic equipment following repair or reconfiguration, in which power is applied and the tester checks for sparks, smoke, or other dramatic signs of fundamental failure.
  2. By extension, the first run of a piece of software after construction or a critical change.
