Unit tests indicate whether the code is doing things right. Functional tests are complementary to - but quite different from unit tests.

What would you like to get out of being a member of agile philly?
Hi André,
It didn't let me choose Administrative as an option for a job title. I liked the sound of Scrum Master/Coach, but only because I don't know what it means. It sounds like something out of Harry Potter.
:) Karey
