Code by Refactoring to Reduce Bugs

How would life be different if your teams simply only wrote one bug every 2-3 weeks?

Most teams produce 20-60 bugs per day. They focus on TDD to find and fix them quickly, but they still spend dev time finding and fixing. And some slip by, which require entire departments to handle – testers to find them, operations staff to work around them, call centers to support customers through them, project managers to prioritize and communicate about them, not to mention additional developers to fix them.

Other teams produce a bug every few weeks or months. When they find it, they fix it immediately – and their patch never has a new bug. They do automated testing, but the tests never have anything to find. There is no call center, no bug database, no triage, no waste.

We teach specific technical habits that help you stop writing bugs.
