The final and most important step before release date

An app goes through a lot of different processes before it gets released. Of course every developer is convinced his product is totally free of bugs and errors. But this is nearly impossible. Because “zero programmers” only exist in a perfect world! Once I´ve read a quotation which describes this best: “To err is human. To err is also to code. Creating an error-free program is impossible because try as hard as you might, there will always be bugs.” With this article I want to show you a few points you should definitely check before release date! Because only a happy user is a paying user.

Customer expectations are higher than ever and no one accepts errors anymore. Unit tests can make you feel confident about your code by verifying that all components work as expected. But besides the increased confidence you will get, writing unit tests can also improve the quality of the code itself. To be able to test small parts of an application independently you are automatically forced to think about the structure and modularity of your code. And as a bonus, well written unit tests can serve as an easy to read documentation of a component’s functional behaviour.
