Varieties of Software Test

unit test - Can the program add 1+1?
end-to-end test - Does sausage come out?
regression test - Does the program go back to committing the same crimes it was once cured of?
transgression test - No such thing.


Good software is subjected to these weak tests. Most software isn’t made so carefully.

give me a clue so sweet and true
