Think Like a Tester


rock forwards and backwards. It's flush city.

The point to all this is simple: Did anyone actually test these facilities in a real world situation? I think not. As with the restrooms, too often on projects we get pulled into the "let's build something" mentality, and we forget about how it will work or not in real life. That's why we need more people to "think like testers."
