So I’ve recently soft-launched something. It’s far from complete. Actually, that version of the page is the fourth attempt. I definitely suffer from a bit of perfectionism but recently, I’ve really unlocked something when speaking with friends. Two of them, Iheanyi and Reggie really spelled it out for me: stop writing tests. This was specifically in the context of working on software that hasn’t even seen the public eye.
I kept writing test after test, mock after mock, for things I wasn’t 100% sure that I’d be using in production. That was the true kicker1; that I wasn’t even sure that what I was testing was even going to affect the user!
No more, I say! No MORE!
This is also the true moral of this post. ↩
