Rodney Dangerfield was known to say “I don't get no respect.” Sometimes,
that’s how it feels to be a test engineer. I’m always amazed how little
appreciation the test organization garners in most companies. From
forgetting to invite us to design reviews, to the inevitable schedule
crunch near the end of the project, the test group goes greatly
unappreciated in the engineering world.
I therefore thought it might be interesting to bring you a perspective
into the wonderful world of test. Over time, I hope to touch on subjects
that explain the role of testing at each stage of the product lifespan,
and to spark discussions on the theories, processes, practices,
concerns, and benefits that are (or at least should be) an integral part
of every solid test effort.
