in reply to Re^5: Testing IS Development
in thread Testing IS Development

The tests of which you speak here really move into the realm of process data integrity, not the specific testing of any particular application.
That maybe for the specific example I gave*, but remember, I only raised the issue after the following statement was made:
The benefit of test driven development is, you *know* your code will work before you ship it.
which IMO, is so far away from the truth, I wouldn't hire a programmer who thinks that way. I rather have a programmer who's unsure, than one who's convinced to be right, when he isn't.

*A programmer might also assume the area of a circle is 22/7 times the radius, and write his/her tests accordingly.
