Q: How Much Effort Should I Invest in Automated Testing For An MVP?

Written by Sean Murphy. Posted in skmurphy

Q: I have worked on large enterprise software systems but am now struggling working at a startup creating a Minimum Viable Product (MVP). I am a big believer in BDD and TDD, so I’ve developed an automated testing suite for the MVP that has high coverage and great specifications describing and asserting its behaviors in HTML with good pictures. My worry is that large chunks of my MVP may never be used again if the customer doesn’t like the demo. Also, I developed the MVP from the bottom up and I worry that I wrote tests for corner cases that may or may not be exercised in the demo.
