    3. IN SHORT: THERE ARE SEVERAL TYPES/ METHODOLOGIES OF SOFTWARE

    TESTING. E.G: UNIT TESTS, INTEGRATION TESTS, OPERATIONAL ACCEPTANCE TESTS…

    IT'S NOT JUST ABOUT TESTS WHY SOFTWARE TESTS? ▸ To

    ensure that what we create does what it’s supposed to do.

    IT'S NOT JUST ABOUT TESTS WHY SOFTWARE TESTS? ▸ To

    ensure that what we create does what it’s supposed to do. ▸ “Something that works when one person is using it may not work when hundreds of people are using it”.

    IT'S NOT JUST ABOUT TESTS WHY SOFTWARE TESTS? ▸ To

    ensure that what we create does what it’s supposed to do. ▸ “Something that works when one person is using it may not work when hundreds of people are using it”. ▸ We owe it to our users and ourselves to deliver the best application we can.

    HOWEVER, TDD IS NOT THE "ONLY ONE" ( BDD, CDD,

    DDD, MDD, FDD, ATDD, AND THE OTHER DOUBLE D’S )

    “ FOLK WISDOM IN SOFTWARE DEVELOPMENT TEACHES THAT INTERFACES SHOULDN'T

    BE UNDULY INFLUENCED BY IMPLEMENTATIONS. WRITING A TEST FIRST IS A CONCRETE WAY TO ACHIEVE THIS SEPARATION. ” Kent Beck, Extreme Programming Explained: Embrace Change IT'S NOT JUST ABOUT TESTS

    “ IF IT'S HARD TO BE TESTED, SORRY YOUR CODE

    DESIGN IS WRONG. ” Raphael Amorim, Random Tweet IT'S NOT JUST ABOUT TESTS

    “ TDD IS NOT EASY, IT TAKES TIME TO LEARN

    AND GET RIGHT AND THERE IS A RISK THAT IT COULD BE A TIME SINK FOR A PROJECT IF THE ENTIRE DEVELOPMENT TEAM DOES NOT BUY INTO ITS USAGE. ” Bradley Braithwaite, TDD: It's not just about the Tests IT'S NOT JUST ABOUT TESTS
