Since I started programming back in 1999 the software I have written has invariably been database based. The testing process for the software invariably requires the database to be populated with data. Over time I have come to the two following conclusions:

  1. You know you have a lot of development left when it is easier to edit the data driectly in the database rather than using the software you’re writing.
  2. There is a light at the end of the tunnel when it is easier to use your software than to edit the data directly in the database.

Just a little food for thought.
