Clarke Ching blogs a great little anecdote from a dinner with David Putman about why “test first” means “find defects first”:
‘And, when you plan your waterfall projects, when do you plan to do the testing?’ ...

‘At the end’, I said...

‘So’, he smiled, ‘You PLAN ... to find defects at the worst point of the project, when you are at your most vulnerable and the defects are the most expensive to fix?’.
