I could not agree more! I always ran my own tests constantly while building applications even before I knew what the names of the different testing types where. The best person to test the individual pieces of code is the developer of that code. Of course as a matter of pride, I do my best to avoid any errors in my code and am more than happy to let someone else try to break it. If there is something wrong, then I want to know no matter who finds the problem.

Those who try to hide problems are fools and only hurt themselves in the long run.

"Program testing can be used to show the presence of bugs, but never to show their absence."Edsger Dijkstra
