Turning Numbers into Knowledge: Mastering the Art of Problem Solving

Over the past 40 years, software design and construction techniques have evolved spectacularly. Each year, we build larger and more complex programs that we could the year before. Unfortunately, many of our test techniques and management maxims come decades past — a time when software was simpler and computer time cost more than people. We must foster significant advances in both theory and practice of testing to catch up with the progress in technology and programming.
