Windows 7: Top 10 reasons NOT to test my code.

Top 10 reasons NOT to test my code.

Help me out? I plan to write an article about testing code. Personally, I find it frustrating when I stumble into code that was obviously never tested.

So, with the intent of adding a litle humor, I am looking for ideas as to why developers would not want to test their code.



Just to get you thinking, I'll seed the list...
  • I get paid the same whether I test the code or not.
  • I have YOU to test it for me. I'll fix it in the next release.
  • The natural order of the universe is entropy. Broken code is part of nature. Get used to it.
  • I'm having a bad day, why shouldn't you?
Later, I'll create a survey to learn the most popular responses from all the ideas. Thanks in advance for your suggestions!

  • The cat wanted dinner and it was very insistent.
  • The computer joined a cult and testing is against it's beliefs.
  • I'm a germaphobe and can't risk encountering bugs.
  • Your defenition of bugs and my definition of bugs differ greatly.
  • I believe in letting end users learn valauble trouble shooting skills.
  • It's a team effort. You are now part of the team.

The people developing our webshop system at my dayjob always say;

We have more clients and we can only work on your system a few hours a week, so we don't have time to test for bugs.
