To begin our series on software testing, we direct you to an excellent blog post by Jon McBee (CLA, CLED, CTD, LabVIEW Champion, Certified ScrumMaster). Jon begins with a comparison of software unit testing to flossing one’s teeth. We will let you enjoy his analogy directly, though one data point is interesting. In a survey that has been conducted over the last few years and includes over 150 respondents, less than 10% state that they “often” or “always” test LabVIEW code with the NI Unit Test Framework (UTF) or another tool. When asked about conducting structured testing, the number rises to only 20%. Jon’s article is an outstanding review of effective methods for software testing that will inspire us all.

I stumbled upon this article on software testing and found it to be a really useful source of information. Jon McBee makes an interesting comparison between software unit testing and flossing teeth - it's an analogy that definitely resonates with me!I was surprised to learn from the survey mentioned that less than 10% of respondents always test their LabVIEW code with a tool like NI Unit Test Framework.
