In software development, managing dependencies and state is crucial for ensuring deterministic behavior: for any given input, we aim for a consistent output (This is a key reason behind the growing hype for functional programming, as it emphasizes immutability and stateless functions, simplifying the management of dependencies and state). However, as the number of inputs and modules increases, so does the complexity of handling them, potentially leading to a higher risk of bugsā€”unintended outcomes. To mitigate this, it's essential to minimize and manage dependencies effectively, acknowledging that they can introduce similar challenges by increasing system interconnectedness and potential failure points.

Developer working with bugs

The following article ("Stop testing your code!") made me think about the benefits of testing beyond Bug Cacthing.

Diving into the world of tests reveals a multitude of benefits beyond the obvious ones (like ensuring functionality integrity and catching bugs early). Let's break down some of these benefits and then touch upon common mistakes that can undermine these advantages.
