A small booklet on testing by Alberto Savoia.

  • If you write code, write tests.
  • Don’t get stuck on unit testing dogma.
  • Embrace unit testing karma.
  • Think of code and test as one.
  • The test is more important than the unit.
  • The best time to test is when the code is fresh.
  • Tests not run waste away.
  • An imperfect test today is better than a perfect test someday.
  • An ugly test is better than no test.
  • Sometimes, the test justifies the means.
  • Only fools use no tools.
  • Good tests fail.
