100 Bytes Of Wisdom: Day 38

Alt Text

Hmm, those two labels have the same value? That seems... unlikely? Ah yes, when I copy and pasted I didn't change the value it was meant to display.
I am always suspicious of duplicate, missing or unrealistic data on screen when I am testing, and when my spider senses tingle, more often than not, it's a bug. Being able to take yourself out of the developer seat and place yourself in the tester seat is a powerful tool for making quality work. Be suspicious. Be curious.

Heads up: As with any terse bit of advice, there will be exceptions of course, and subtleties and nuance that can't possibly be captured in a Byte of Wisdom. This has been what I've experienced, I'd love to hear yours in the comments too!
