in reply to On bad habits

I jump to invent my own solution even when adapting an existing one is a better choice. I'd rather write new code than patch old code and that preference sometimes gets in the way of finding the simplest thing that will work.

I don't do as much test-driven development as I should. I almost always write tests but sometimes I write them after the code is mostly working.

    My bad habit is never getting in the habit of writing tests at all. :)
      Oh, I think you'll be breaking that one real soon.
