Software Development Rules of Thumb
- Spend equal time between analysis, design, implementation, and test.
- An average programmer can produce about 1,000 lines of code per month.
- Testing, which covers 80% of the code, finds 90% of the bugs, at
20% the cost of doing total coverage.
- You will discover about 1 bug for every 100 lines of code during testing.
- You will discover 1 bug in the released product for every 10 bugs
discoverd during testing.
- You will be lucky to fix two bugs a day.
