Steven Frank om buggar

ObjectiveSee har en intressant intervju med Steven Frank, en av grundarna av Panic:

If you had two minutes to share your favorite debugging tip with a fellow developer, what would it be?

Well, the best bug is the one you never wrote. Recently, I’ve become big fan of automated unit testing and continuous integration. I think some developers shy away from it, because it seems like “extra work” you have to do on top of writing your actual program. But that’s myopic because it doesn’t consider the time saved in the long run by being able to make broad, foundation-level improvements to your code without having a doubt in your mind that it still works the way it’s supposed to.

Hela intervjun är extremt läsvärd. Missa inte.
