in reply to Effective Automated Testing

Just an anecdote:

My task was to add a new feature to our product. As the feature was rather complicated, I created some tests along coding it. When the release date was near, the project manager asked me whether I was finished. Almost, my reply was, I'm still working on the tests. Don't waste your time, tests aren't part of the task, said he. Nevertheless, I finished the tests as well as the task the next day, still several days before the deadline. At almost the same time, the client changed the requirements and we had to add some additional features. Thanks to the tests, it didn't take me more than one hour. I can't imagine what I'd have done if the tests hadn't been there. Since then, I've created tests several times, but there hasn't been any complaint from the manager about wasting my time.
