A sign of team maturity

You know you have a mature team when, nine months into a project, your testing stats are:

  • 2384 unit tests
  • 606 integration tests
  • 205 UI/acceptance tests

And no one is asking to throw a party.  In past teams, we would mark milestones, “500 tests, hooray!!”.  With my current team, quality is not a goal, it’s a requirement for success.  These stats tell us that we’re merely fulfilling expectations, of both our management and ourselves.  A bar set high is a good thing.
