At the big meeting this morning, the new Vice President of Software announces that this project is critical to the success of the company - that it is too important, and must be tested completely.

What did he just ask for? If you did completely test it, what would that mean, what would it promise, and what would it take to do? Journey along with Matt Heusser in a rousing discussion of software testing, professionalism, knowledge and communication about software testing. Along the way you will pick up pointers for explaining testing, setting expectations, risk management … and maybe, just maybe, a little doing more with less. Take home with you a transcript of advice on the issue of complete testing, as well as an audio discussion of the same.
