Writing code without tests

11 May 2011

Suppose that you write code without tests that compile. Suppose that those parts do not have any user interface or tests. Then what you’re doing is actually pushing development cost over to other parts of the project that make use of the code. This will probably mean that any cost/time estimates concerning dependent code needs to be adjusted in order to be able to pay for the additional cost.
