Hello everyone, this is my first time posting on Indie Hackers :)
I think you are the most qualified people I could ask for an opinion regarding software testing in the MVP phases of a product.
The common belief is that software testing is not necessary at the beginning because it slows down the process, and building features fast is a priority if you plan to get on the market asap.
I'm wondering, is this really the case? My first thought is that if the product becomes successful, you may have lots of technical debt. Of course you could build everything from scratch, but isn't that a waste of time and resources?
One can say that developing without tests is justified by the fact that the product can fail, but why starting a project with the idea that it'll fail? I think that's already starting off on the wrong foot.
Happy to hear your opinions about this :)
