Discussion on: Why You Must Always Follow Test to Break Principles

This couldn't have come at a better time for me. I've been asked to test some new applications at work to make sure it does what it's supposed to do. But recently I'd been wondering why our existing systems always seem to break. It turns out that we, as users, are doing things that the original software designers didn't expect us to. Nobody gave us a manual and so we've all taught ourselves on the job. Anyhow, now when I test out the new application I'm going to do it just as a real world user would do and see where it breaks rather than walking through the idealised scenarios. Thanks!
