Talking about Testing is like the story of blind men describing an elephant. Each description depends on what part they touch. Software testing can be such a universally different job depending on so many things, what is common or normal is moot.

We know you have lots of thoughts, ideas and opinions about your work, and we want to hear them.
There was an IEEE conference in July, hosted at the University of Limerick.
