A1.2) Lots of young people have stars in their eyes about what automation can do, because of it. This erodes testing culture.

CDT, by definition, means doing what works, instead of what someone wants to force you to do. #uTestBach

Context-Driven Testing means learning your craft, so that you know how to solve problems that arise in it.
The most common other type of testing is Factory School testing. This means deskilling the craft.

BTW, Factory School is also anti-Agile, in essence, yet a lot of "Agile" projects seem to embrace it.

A real tester is someone who's primary aim is to find important problems before it's too late. #uTestBach

Testing is all about discovering business risks with respect to products. It's not about resolving the risk.

1. watch yourself test very carefully, in great detail. 2. Read Jerry Weinberg books. 3. Study technology #uTestBach

Q5) asked about the most important skill a tester can have. James: test design -- modeling.

Modeling skill means the ability to abstract patterns from experiences, and to relate different patterns together.

Computers can only manipulate symbols. Someone has to decide what symbols they will manipulate and how.

Modeling of the kind I'm talking about also is called "learning." Computers can't learn for the tester

A7.1) We're in a transition time, so it's real hard to say. But the demand for my classes is stronger than ever. #uTestBach
