I am a Pragmatic Programmer Part 7

This is Part 7 of 7 part series inspired from the book Pragmatic Programmer, read Part 6 here:

  1. Use a Project Glossary: Create and maintain a single source of all the
    specific terms and vocabulary for a project.
  2. Start When You’re Ready: You’ve been building experience all your
    life. Don’t ignore niggling doubts.
  3. Don’t Be a Slave to Formal Methods: Don’t blindly adopt any technique
    without putting it into the context of your development practices and
    capabilities.
  4. Organize Teams Around Functionality: Don’t separate designers from
    coders, testers from data modelers. Build teams the way you build
    code.
  5. Test Early. Test Often. Test Automatically: Tests that run with every
    build are much more effective than test plans that sit on a shelf.
  6. Use Saboteurs to Test Your Testing: Introduce bugs on purpose in a
    separate copy of the source to verify that testing will catch them.
  7. Find Bugs Once: Once a human tester finds a bug, it should be the last
    time a human tester finds that bug. Automatic tests should check for
    it from then on.
  8. Build Documentation In, Don’t Bolt It On: Documentation created
    separately from code is less likely to be correct and up to date.
  9. Sign Your Work: Craftsmen of an earlier age were proud to sign their
    work. You should be, too.

This is last part of 7 part series.Thanks for reading!
