What is your recent challenge?

Mine: I started an overhaul for a codebase after my last weekend visit to DHTML, the reason for the overhaul is that the codebase is a mess filled with bugs. So, I planned adding tests to it. But you know what, I was able to complete the authentication and basic authorization for users in just s couple of days. But been writing test for it since the past four days. I just have a break through with the authorization test for basic user and Super Admin, Still have three more authorization level to test.

What keeps me going is seeing the test failed and wanting to have them run each time. Also, I was able to bootstrap the app level functionality test, so I am happy seeing them run each time I rerun them.

Morale, I can confidently modify parts of the new code with less worry of breaking some feature if my test run successfully after the update.

Let's hear from you guys.

That is a very great achievement, I am working on the same path too myself at the moment. That is why development is somewhat frozen at the moment.

I came to understand that is the normal route to modern, agile development.

Uhm uhm, it depends on the future of your work. If you are a looking at a work that will scale well across different platforms, mobile e.t.c and get good experiences, yes, that is ithe way to go.

I will disagree on this. As much as I learn of product reliability, and bringing it to software development, I strive for what will make it maintainable. As far as it is hitting production, let's try as much to incorporate tests into our codebase.

You are right, what was on my mind actually was the people that do stuffs with WORDPRESS and all these ready-made stuffs e.t.c

Boss, you know we have names for the right WordPress coders, called WordPress developers. Those ones writer programs for it, and some might incorporate tests.
But ehm the template installers them, they are good at finding the right template and with the help of plugins get the job done.
You might mean the template installers.
