Software Testing Needs Test Data Generation

For most software engineers testing software is a burden. We don’t have time to test. The product has to be ready now. These are really just excuses.

*** Quote of the Month ***

Any manager, when goals are not being met, identifies the impediments and whenever possible removes them. A good manager goes further by identifying and removing potential impediments before they lead to the goals not being met. A great manager makes this seem easy. — Tony Bowden, Socialtext
