Failure is progress

Failure is progress. Now we have a concrete measure of failure. That's better than just vaguely knowing we a re failing. Our programming problem has been transformed from "give me multi-currency" to "make this test work, and then make the rest of the tests work." Much simpler. Much smaller scope for fear. We can make this test work.

-- Kent Beck, about a failing test
