First sensible discussion on software testing after a long while

I happened to listen to a CAST 2012 lecture “Get the Balance Right: ATDD, GUI Automation and Exploratory Testing” in You Tube; an interesting one in the sense that it highlights essentials from practitioners point of view rather than riding on marketing hype and mundane technical jargons.

It is probably the first sensible one in software testing after a long while.  There is unfortunate explosion of jargons which complicate and hinder rather than help improve software testing as a specialization. My personal observation is both hype and jargons more to do with marketing/business needs of consultants and tool vendors rather than the subject matter itself.
