Ofcourse it works. Begining the habit to write tests will teach this skill "think carefully what can go wrong". No one born with this skill even Donald Knuth.


Sir Donald offers bug bounty as a power of 2 for each next bug.

It is absolutely bug free and is often used as a typical reference for the best software ever written.
