The Testing Profession: The Good, the Bad and the Ugly

An opinionated tirade of strong opinions and rants

Paul covers personal hot points in the testing profession with opinions on how we can improve them

Paul Holland will discuss many testing topics including metrics, automation, language/semantics, and trends in the industry. During this energetic talk Paul will talk about his own experiences, observations, and conclusions that back up his ideas. He will provide guidance as to what testers can do to combat "best practices" like "our goal is 100% automation". He will show examples of test reports that provide actionable information and not numbers that give the illusion of information. But, most of all, he will provide you with his strong opinions in the form of entertaining rants and stories.
