What You Should Do When Improving Software
Think through your testing process.
Test code's behavior under both expected and unexpected conditions.
The earlier the better.
Appeal to engineers who enjoy breaking things.
Before code settles down, test manually.
Later, have engineers use automated tests, before turning code in.
Clean up old code as each file gets run.
Fifty percent to 80% of your files should never have to be touched.
