Who must test applications by creating fake data for invented users can often get through the day with a serious lack of imagination.
Of course, we often work with frameworks or libraries that offer tools to, for example, populate DBs with very realistic data. But other times to test small applications you have to rely on the imagination only. This can be annoying and can also affect the speed of work at times.
For these cases and to avoid entering names like John Doe, Foo, Asd or even 123, I point out one of the many sites that creates fake data for free.
This one is very complete: it gives you even coordinates, zodiac sign, credit card data, etc. and let you choose many options like nationality, age range and so on. Hope it will be useful :)
If you know similar websites feel free to suggest me.
