There are two different types of bugs: unexpected behavior and wrong behavior (in a functional way).
The former may result in things like NPEs in languages like Java. That is definitely something that could be prevent in stronger typed languages like Haskell eg. however, the second type could still happen and then could happen in each and every line of code. Sure, you can write integration test but it’s much harder to cover all expenses edge cases than in unit tests. Using CI is obviously very important but mostly solves the problem of “works kn my machine”. It’s definitely way to slow to use it while implementing a feature. Then, you want feedback loops of 500ms-1s.
