In previous years (see I 2015,  2014 and 2013), I picked a word of the year. For 2016 I take the liberty to bend (break?) the rule (I see it more as a guideline) and select a term rather than a word.

And the term is:art-and-science

I see a close relation between software development in general, testing in particular and science & art. Additionally, with my background in astronomy, physics and oceanography, my thinking is biased by my education in science.
