comment Should data validation be automated in a rapid development environment
Great comment Kate. When I first read "dB structure changing every quarter" I thought either this team needs some better up-front planning, or it would likely be some wasted cycles trying to hit a moving target and he would likely spend more time maintaining the automation than any perceived value he got from it.

comment Is a distinction between “testing” and “checking” useful?
Not all automation is rudimentary script-lets, and some automation designs incorporate things such as data variations and or state transition variations (model based testing or "automated exploration") that involves 'experimentation.'

comment Test cases in source code
As would I, but in some small shops test code unfortunately is sometimes scattered about local machines or stored on various servers.

comment In TDD, do tests need to be automated?
To say "most developers do not have the time or interest to do test automation" is a bit narrow and most dev's I know now definately have a different point of view compared to say 5 years ago. A dev who doesn't unit test his/her code is incompetent at best. Also, what the heck is a manual unit test? "Manual unit testing" is an oxymoron.

comment How can I better educate testers about context driven testing?
Perhaps not, but often someone's perception is their reality. So the percieved value that some orgs get from standardizing on jargon such as "unit tests" is of more value than having everyone argue whether or not equivalence partitioning or creating logical groupings is a figment of someone's imagination.

comment How can I better educate testers about context driven testing?
@Bruce, this seems to imply that people who call themselves "context-driven testers" and who work in the same organization don't have common jargon for describing sev 1 bugs, or understanding what a unit test is.
