Title: Test is not for Finding Bugs

Test used to be something that had to get done sometime before shipping the product. Test could wait while we did the important work of specifying, designing and coding the system. Test was what we did to find bugs. Test was reactive.

That was then. Test should not be that unpleasant activity at the end of the development phase; it is an integral and critical part of everyday work. It does not add drudgery, or overhead; it adds rewarding feedback and makes it possible to put more value into the software instead of wasting time chasing bugs. Test is specification; test is defect prevention, test drives good designs. Tests must be largely automated, though you may think that you cannot afford to automate; when in reality, you cannot afford not to.

    Unfortunately, I've just discovered I have a meeting conflict. I won't make this meeting tonight, which is a bummer.
