re: Explain "Smoke Testing" like I'm five VIEW POST


Q: How much of the house is on fire?
A: I don't know, but I smell smoke, so there is definitely fire.

In other words, smoke tests give a quick check that things are ok or not. Smoke tests pass then hey, probably no fires. Smoke tests fail, there is a fire. They are used with other types of tests to give a more complete picture.
