  • It took my a long time to get it in my head that I should be writing my tests just like I wrie the code I'm testing: Modular and Reusable.

    It really hit home with me when I was writing tests for classes I knew other people would inherit or subclass. In that case, why not make it easier for the new distant coder to also reuse as much of your test suite as possible to also test their new code.

    That's sort of easy with Test::Class. Sometimes, it takes a little more effort in things like NUnit in .NET, where you're not tied to having test class base at all.
