Although we are striving towards integrating testing more closely into our development process we still have a long way to go. I thought this article does a good job of explaining testing philosophy in a fun way.

To summarize:

  • All code needs to be tested.
  • Ugly tests are better then no tests.
  • Write tests often
  • Run tests often

A few weeks ago I gave a short presentation regarding testing with Selenium. Earlier today I sent out some introductory documentation as well. Hopefully in the coming weeks we will all begin to familiarize ourselves with some of the testing tools out there and begin, more seriously, incorporating testing into our build process.
