functionality, or fix broken functionality, unless there's a test to
cover the issue you're trying to address.
If you haven't written that test, you haven't spent enough time on it.
This assumes you're doing TDD or BDD of course. After 15 months of
doing it, I can't imagine coding any other way. Coding anything other
than spike solutions without TDD has become almost unthinkable.
- We write the acceptance test using a testing tool known as STIQ (Story test IQ). We consider writing tests as a part of coading. We write the tests first and then code to pass the tests. This makes our lives easy.
