“My final, and perhaps more important, advice is to always write regression tests. Encode every single bug you find as a test, to ensure that you’ll notice if you ever encounter it again.”
That rings so true to my multiple decades of experience. Not only that, I can testify that on many occasions I wished I had really done what the author suggested.
