I’ve got a small piece in Avionics Intelligence about the importance of software testing. It’s short and to the point, so give it a read and let me know what you think. The gist is that for some things testing is far more important than others, especially where lives are at stake. It may be ok for a desktop program to crash, but not for an airplane.
It also got a press amusing mention on Vector Software. Thanks for the mention people, if you met me you’d know why the Code Curmudgeon name. 😉
