Thoughts on Testing

Here's the way testing goes...

while
writingTheSameThingOverAndOverAgain
becomeMoreAggressive
writeFewerTests
writeTestsForMoreInterestingCases
      if getBurnedByStupidDefect
      feelStupid
      becomeTimidAndTestEverything
      end
end

The loop, as you can see, never terminates.

...this is a great profession for those of us who love to learn
continuously...(Of course, that also makes it a good place to be
if you like to feel constantly inadequate! You can never know enough.)...
