CI or a unit testing process? me : unit testing developer : wow developer...

  • They all have one thing in common.....

    Test first Test during Test after Answer, Test. No matter what style of testing you believe in, they all share one common trait. They all test your code. So, what is the point of this post you may ask? Simple. To me, it does not matter how your tests come to be, but having tests is what is important...

  • Why I believe IN and WRITE unit tests

    In my last post I think I struck a cord with some people in my post 'Unit tests taking too much time'. My intent was NOT to sound like an elitist Agilist or any else of that nature.
