staffTerrence Dorsey2-Dec-12 10:46 
The... “multiple layers of defense” strategy applies to modern software development. For example, even though the compiler will scream at you if your code does not make sense, there is no reason to skip fixing it, if you happen to see it on your editor.... The principles are summarized as: If you screw up, you want to know earlier than later, and the first layer should have the lowest cost and effort.
Test early, test often... and get something to test automatically if you can.
