I'm Andy Lester, and I like to test stuff. I also write for the Perl Journal, and do tech edits on books. Sometimes I write code, too.

Pragmatic testing

[ #15872 ]
Just got a review copy of Pragmatic Unit Testing by the Pragmatic Programmer guys. I think I'm going to have to borrow a quote from the back for everything testing-related that I do:

You don't test a bridge by driving a single car over it right down the middle lane on a clear, calm day.

The book's examples are in JUnit, but from thumbing through it, it looks like the concepts apply across the board.

  • I bought the original book at 40% off at Barnes and Noble a month or so ago, and am loving it. I treat myself to a chapter to start every work day.
