I was a nontraditional student at the University of Kentucky. I just graduated but the economy is interfering with my career change. However, that means I'll have lots of time to pursue all the good ideas on SO!

comment What is shakeout testing?
Yeah, well, I'm already working for a client who uses the term. I wanted to understand it better before I went onsite for some training. Now that I've had some experience, I realize they use it in the same sense as "smoke test".

I selected this as the "best" answer because, after working for a client for several months, this is the meaning that most closely matches how they use the term.

"Smoke test" is also used in plumbing, to figure out where the holes are, so you can start fixing them.
