The value of any practice
depends on its context.
There are good practices
in context, but there are no best practices.
People, working together,
are the most important part of any project's context.
Projects unfold over time
in ways that are often not predictable.
The product is a solution.
If the problem isn't solved, the product doesn't work.
Good software testing is
a challenging intellectual process.
Only through judgment and
skill, exercised cooperatively throughout the entire project, are we able
to do the right things at the right times to effectively test our products.
