Shouldn’t developers test their own code?

Shouldn’t developers test their own code?

Glen Myers’ book [12] makes the statement, “A programmer should avoid attempting to test his or her own program”. We may have depended on that ‘principle’ too strongly, and built an industry on it, it seems. There are far too many testers who do bureaucratic paperwork shuffling – writing stuff down, creating scripts that are inaccurate and out of date, processing incidents that add little value etc. The industry is somewhat bloated and budget-holders see them as an easy target for savings. Shift-left is a reassessment and realignment of responsibility for testing.

Developers can and must test their own code. But that is not ALL the testing that is done, of course.
