Damn Skippy

From a conversation whilst pairing with a client developer as we attempted to test infect some legacy code last week.

Me: Phew! Well, that little bit is under test now. We can start to fix it up now.

Client Dev: That seemed too hard....you know, if the guys who wrote that had had to put in tests as they went, the API would NEVER have looked like this. It would just have been too painful to work with.


It really is nice to witness the penny drop. True job satisfaction.
