Abstract: Most software professionals believe that testing software is essential to quality. Where people insided the industry differ is how to accomplish that testing - strategies vary by level of the application tested, tools, methodology, amount of automation, and who completes the testing itself. The aspirational desire is to ship high-quality bug-free software no matter how one gets there. This talk will get around automation, refactoring DSLs, tools and collaboration.
