In my first blog post, Do We Need to Teach Code Maintenance?, I discussed the importance of teaching our students the required skills they will need to perform their first job of maintaining software. In this follow up article, I will discuss the ramifications of not testing code, the time and money the industry spends on maintaining code, the potential high cost of fixing software defects and how program curriculum design could have a positive impact on reducing the cost of maintaining software in the industry.
