Testing Existing Code

Poke the product with tests.

The Change

When you need to understand existing code, then ask it a question! Phrase each question as a test, then update the test with the answer.

The Value Proposition

You’re trying to connect to somebody’s code, but you don’t want to spend days figuring out their code. Worse, you don’t know what you need to know, so you have to overlearn it. This module helps you hack the problem by breaking it into specific questions and poking the bear to see what happens. Days become hours!

Benefits include:

  1. Getting from vague questions to specific questions.
  2. Getting answers recorded and checked in.
  3. Reducing executive function by not needing to remember what’s recorded.
  4. Keeping track of the important small details you found along the way.
