Did You Test It?

Geoff Young posted a note on his use.perl blog about how he’s going to reply from now on when someone asks “Did you test it?” He says that, unless he has actual tests for the application, he’ll now respond, “I poked it and it seemed to work, but it doesn’t have tests.” His point being that actual tests “count for a lot, while a few mouse clicks really don’t.”

I’ll take this as a reminder and teaser for the tutorial he and Chris Shiflett will be co-presenting at OSCON: Power PHP Testing.

I’m registered for OSCON and this tutorial. Are you?
