  title={From daikon to agitator: lessons and challenges in building a commercial tool for developer testing},
  author={Marat Boshernitsan and Roong-Ko Doong and Alberto Savoia},
Developer testing is of one of the most effective strategies for improving the quality of software, reducing its cost, and accelerating its development. Despite its widely recognized benefits, developer testing is practiced by only a minority of developers. The slow adoption of developer testing is primarily due to the lack of tools that automate some of the more tedious and time-consuming aspects of this practice.
