Should you change application code to support a test?

When you're writing a test it can be so tempting to just "tweak" some app code to make it easier to write that test, but we discuss why that might not be a good idea. We also talk about some app changes while writing tests that are beneficial to the overall project.

  • (01:30) - Different types of code changes
  • (02:45) - An example with Laravel jobs
  • (04:30) - A time when it's okay to change code while testing
  • (08:50) - Avoid problems by writing tests earlier
