This presentation addresses the core fundamentals of QA that are often misunderstood and misapplied. What is the purpose of software testing? How should testing professionals operate to achieve this purpose? A scientific approach to testing using the scientific method and empirical falsification will be presented with examples of how this approach will deliver higher quality products. Scott has presented versions of this approach for over 10 years to many companies and forums, and has required his teams to follow this approach in all of their testing. This proven approach is often a profound testing shift for many companies and testers.
